|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
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
