Emily's Half-in, Half-out Coffee Cake

From
This very tattered recipe in my file reads "Mommy's 1/2 in 1/2 out muffins", but "Mommy" had a name and these aren't really muffins!! This coffee cake is easy, delicious, and is served from its baking dish. ...Muffy Vhay

Ingredients Cake:
1 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoons sugar
Topping:
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup walnuts or pecans
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cloves

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (375 if your altitude is 5,000 feet or more) and grease and flour an 8- or 9-inch cake-type pan. (I use a pretty ceramic dish.)

Measure dry cake ingredients into sifter. In a mixing bowl, mix wet cake ingredients (milk, egg, and butter). Sift the dry ingredients into the wet, and just mix until blended. In a separate bowl, mix the topping ingredients.

Spread the cake mixture into the baking dish. Swirl 1/2 of the topping into the cake (as you would a marble cake). Spread the remaining 1/2 of the topping over the top of the cake. Bake until lightly browned, about 20 to 25 minutes.

Serves: 6 to 8
