This is a favorite in my family. If you like the cookies, you just die for the coffee cake. Best when served warm.

  1. Mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, milk, margarine and egg.
  2. Pour into a greased and floured 8 or 9 inch square pan.

I changed a few things, so take my review for what it is. I reduced the sugar to 1/3 of a cup and upped the spices to 1 tbsp cinnamon, 1 tsp allspice, 1 tsp nutmeg and 1/2 tsp ginger. And I used an extra egg and oil instead of the melted margarine. Then I poured 1/2 the batter in the pan and added a layer of skor bits before adding the second half of the batter. I also used cane sugar for the topping to give it a bit more of a rustic feel.

This coffee cake was just what I wanted... It was delicious... Now I did make a few changes 1) I used sugar substitute (trivia) ... Texture in the cake was still light and fluffy. 2) for the topping I used brown sugar mixture on top ... Brown sugar and trivia.... This cake is light and fluffy and perfect for tea and coffee
