Looking for a old fashion Coffeecake

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I am looking for a old fashion coffeecake recipe. My mother make coffeecake when I was very young and I never got her recipe.  She would put cinnamanon and butter on it and it was so good.

 

So if someone has a very good coffeecake recipe could you share it with us.

Have you tried a Google or Yahoo or any of the other serach engines available on the Internet?

Not to mention the Search Bar at the top of this page?

I found MANY threads on Chef Talk in regards to Coffee Cake,

Just a thought...

Oh you want a lard based recipe? You certainly don't need it to taste delicious and its not like lard
Is good for you. The recipe I've made for years is from a cookbook written in the early 60s.
Its pretty fool proof and has great flavour. Only problem is, I went to make it last week and couldn't find the recipe.
I'm looking for it, it's probably in storage with my other cookbooks.
But I can tell you it was 3 parts ...batter, topping and crumb topping.
And the batter was 2 sugars, eggs flour, whole milk, butter and some baking powder.
Do remember any of the orig ingredients besides lard cinnamon and butter?

I honestly believe you are talking about the same recipe.

 

If you are able to find that recipe you would make me so very happy.

 

I will be looking forward in having it.

 

Thank-You very much

I have an old coffeecake recipe from betty crocker's 1950 cookbook.  (Everything in that cookbook came out well - really foolproof)

Not sure if it's the one you want.  This calls for "shortening" but i always used butter, and you might want to use lard

 

Mix together thoroughly :

 

3/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup soft fat (butter, lard, or shortening)

1 egg

 

stir in:

 

1/2 cup milk

 

sift together and stir in

 

1 1/2 cups flour

2 tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

 

spread in greased and floured 9 inch square pan.  sprinkle with topping.  bake 375 for 25 to 35 minutes

 

streusel topping

 

mix together::

 

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 tbsp flour

2 tsp cinnamon

2 tbsp butyter melted

1/2 cup chopp[ed nuts

 

i also have a boston cooking school fannie farmer cookbook from 1941 and it's about the same. 

 

not sure if this comes close. I remember it was made a lot when i was a kid (back in the 50s)

"Siduri said, 'Gilgamesh, where are you roaming? You will never find the eternal life that you seek...Savour your food, make each of your days a delight, ... let music and dancing fill your house, love the child who holds you by the hand and give your wife pleasure in your embrace.'"

Not sure if this is the style of coffee cake you are looking for, but this one is really good.  The amount of butter in it might scare you eek.gif. I used to make it for a local coffee shop.

I usually make Martha Stewart's recipe for NY Crumb Cake

nhoj, maybe you could expand on what you mean by 'Old Fashion coffee cake', everyone has a different idea ...
