Whole Wheat Coffee Cake

Submitted by: JPOLING1

Introduction

I found this recipe online and made a few modifications to reduce the fat a little. It comes out very good, even with the modifications. I found this recipe online and made a few modifications to reduce the fat a little. It comes out very good, even with the modifications.

Ingredients

    Streusel:
    1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped
    2 1/2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    Cake:
    1 cup lightly spooned and swept whole wheat flour
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    3 tablespoons softened butter (I use light butter)
    1/2 cup milk (I use skim milk)
    1 lightly beaten egg
    1 egg white
    1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a shiny round 8 inch cake pan with baking cooking spray (this is the cooking spray with flour added, although I use any spray and it works just fine).

Stir together walnuts, brown sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together in a mixing bowl. Stir very thoroughly.

Add the soft (not melted!) butter to flour mixture and mash with a spoon, coating as much flour as possible. Using fingers or a pastry cutter, cut mixture until it is coarse and mealy like soft bread crumbs.

Mix together the milk, egg and vanilla. Add to flour mixture and stir (do not beat) until well mixed. It should look a bit like cream of wheat not that smooth.

Spread about 2/3 batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle half of nut mixture over batter. Spread remaining batter over nuts, then top with remaining nut mixture.

Bake on center rack for 25-30 minutes or until done.

Serves 10.
