This recipe was given to me by a friend from work. I have not tried it yet. Her emails had tons of cakes listed. I am going to post the interesting sounding ones. The email had a link to the www.northpole.com website where this recipe is From the kitchen of Kay Smittle.
For the Cake
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1⁄2 cup milk, warm
- 1 (1/4 ounce) package yeast (dissolved in 3 tablespoons warm water)
- 3 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
For The Topping
- 2⁄3 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted (or margarine)
- 1⁄2 cup nuts (or maraschino cherries, candied red or green cherries)
- Cream together sugar and butter. Then add eggs, milk, 1 package of yeast (2 tablespoons bulk yeast) dissolved in 3 tablespoons of warm water, flour, salt and vanilla. Beat all of these ingredients together. Then set dough aside and let it rise, until double in size.
- When your coffee cake dough has risen to double the size (this may take about 2 hours) put it in a 9x13" greased pan and spread with topping.
- To make the topping: Combine sugar, cinnamon, melted butter and nuts (you can use maraschino cherries or candied red and green cherries if you don't like nuts).
- Place in a cold oven and leave it in there overnight to rise.
- The next morning turn oven to 350 degrees and bake for 1/2 hour. Take out and serve warm.
