"Best coffee cake ever! It's so good that our local restaurant now has it on the menu after I brought it to a Sunday School potluck. Our friend Neal, a confirmed bachelor who had never used his oven, liked this so much he asked me to teach him how to make it. Adapted from marileamills at food.com"

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 10 x 13 pan.

Step 2

Whisk together the batter ingredients until just barely incorporated. Spread almost half the batter in pan.

Step 3

In smaller bowl, combine brown sugar, pecans and cinnamon. Sprinkle over batter.

Step 4

Spread remaining batter on top.

Step 5

Bake for about 45 minutes or until golden brown. Be careful not to overbake, but you don't want to underbake either. In my oven, not using convection, it's perfect at 45 minutes.

Step 6

A few minutes before cake is done, whisk last three ingredients together until thin enough to spread.

Step 7

Immediately after moving cake from oven, poke holes in surface with a toothpick. Spread glaze over the cake.

Step 8

Let cool 1 hour, then serve. Tastes great made a day ahead too, just cover tightly.


No special items needed.
