Sunday Morning Coffee Cake

Nathan really likes coffee cake, and I am in the search for a great coffee cake recipe for him. This was the first one I tried... and it was not a success. I'm thinking that it was the baking powder we could taste, which definitely is not cool.
I won't be trying this one again. I would kinda like to fiddle with the recipe, but I don't like messing with the amount of baking powder/baking soda in recipes, for fear of destroying the recipe. :)

Sunday Morning Coffee Cake

2 Tablespoon butter, softened
1/2 Cup sugar
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1 egg
2/3 Cup milk
1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 Cup all purpose flour
3 Teaspoon baking powder
1/4 Cup sugar
2 Tablespoon all purpose flour
1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/4 Cup cold butter

In a small bowl, beat butter, sugar, and salt until crumbly. Add the egg, milk, and vanilla; mix well. Combine flour and baking powder, add to butter mixture. Transfer to a greased 8x8 baking dish.
For topping, in a small bowl, combine the sugar, flour, and cinnamon; cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over batter.
Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cook on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Serve warm if desired.

Serves: 9
