I call this an AMAZING Coffee Cake! This was the first coffee cake I ever made back in 1970's, from the 1968 edition of the Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook, pg.48. I'm not surprised it is still around! It is delightful and light, easy and quick to make! An addition of toasted pecans to the batter and/or topping would make a delightful addtion!

This was a very delish coffee cake! Sweet, but not in an overpowering way. As I had no shortening on hand, I used an equivalent amount of butter, softened to room temp, then whipped till it was fluffy. It washed down perfectly with a steaming hot cup o'joe!

A very nice, simple cake that impressed me with its subtlety. I baked it in a round fluted cake pan, everyone in the family enjoyed it with a rich cup of tea.

Great basic coffee cake recipe! The kids loved making it. We "soured" soy milk and the cake came out great. Does anyone know why it is called cowboy coffee cake? We had fun imagining why as we ate it!

My mom has always made this from her Betty Crocker cookbook. I like using light buttermilk instead of the lemon and milk.

I do a lot of baking and this just didn't impress me or the people I work with.
