Our first grade teacher, Mrs Bridgewater, who had retired twice, would be excused from teacher's meetings to make this recipe. This recipe lives on in many households.

A delicious coffee cake and easy to make. Since the directions for mixing weren't specific, I creamed the softened butter with the sugar, then beat in the egg and salt. I mixed the baking powder with the flour and stirred that in. I did add several smallish apples diced to the batter. For the streusel, I used brown sugar and increased it to 3/4 cup and doubled the flour and butter. (I really like streusel). The texture is perfect. I got raves from everybody! Thanks for the recipe!!
