I can't wait to try this! My husband was telling me how much he missed this recipe that his mother made for him when he was a child. I searched and found it and am going to surprise him with it this week! I also found a handwritten notation somewhere that said to add vanilla, but it didn't say how much. Any ideas?
We love this recipe at altitudes in areas like Phoenix Az and Kansas but we now live at around 6200 feet above sea level and the recipe needs adjusting. Does anyone have suggestions for how much more flour or other ingredients to adjust for the cake to turn out right. We made it yesterday here and the center did not puff up. The cake was gooey as if it was undone.
I made this all the time when my sons were growing up. Everyone, including their friends loved it. They are grown with children, and still request it. I was really glad to see the recipe here. The original called for shortening, but I'm glad to see you're using oil. The original also had you put half the batter in pan, topped with half the topping, then the rest with the topping. I like to make a little more topping than it calls for. Last time I made It for the family, my son sent a photo of it to his childhood friend who was crazy about it, then his friend wanted the recipe so his wife could make it. It's in the oven now, (visiting my son) smells delicious!
Omg my book was stolen ?? a very long time ago, I searched high, and low. I never found that one again, 1st time I made this was 33 yrs ago in Germany, my son was almost a year, every Wednesday, the military wives I met, come over with different stuff but I was the one they ask to always make the same coffee cake. My my 2 babies are going to freak out.
