Cinnamon Coffee Cake

Saturday morning we all decided to bake Cinnamon Coffee Cake. It was a simple recipe so the girls could easily help...which they loved!The recipe was so good and so easy, that I'm going to paste it below. (all credit goes to Sara Beth. My family is loving all the cooking from scratch recipes you sent us! Thanks!!!) The bread came out of the oven around 10:30am. I took the picture below at 12:00pm. Do you think our family liked it?CINNAMON SENSATION COFFEE CAKE
¼ cup margarine
¾ cup sugar
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 ½ cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

Topping:
1 cup brown sugar
3 Tbs flour
2 tsp cinnamon
4 Tbs margarine
½ cup nuts, finely chopped (we left the nuts out. I'm not a big fan of nuts in my food!)

Preheat oven to 350. Spray 9x9 pan to grease. In a medium bowl, cream margarine and sugar; beat in egg. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl. Add to creamed mixture alternately with milk. Stir in vanilla. Pour into prepared pan.

To make topping: In a small bowl, mix together sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Cut in margarine with pastry blender or fork. Spoon half over batter and swirl. Spoon remaining topping over batter and sprinkle with nuts. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

mmm...this is a good recipe! I need to make one soon! I haven't made it in forever. I think credit really goes to some B&B site out there somewhere! Very few of my recipes are my own! Just adaptations of others at the most! What else have you tried that you liked?
