Surprise Coffee Cake




A surprise it was! I’ve always wanted to make a coffee cake but the thought of messing it up held me back. Today, I went for it.

There were many recipes but I winged it, taking suggestions for proportions in the several I read(eye rolling at some, ha ha). 


1 stick butter

1 3/4 cup granulated sugar 

1/4 cup canola oil

1/2 cup whole milk

1/2 cup sour cream

1 large egg

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1/2 tsp. salt

2 tsp. baking powder

Crumb Topping

1/2 stick butter 

1/4 cup canola oil

1/2 cup dark brown sugar 

3/4 - 1 cup cup all purpose flour(or enough to make crumbly)


Melt 1 stick of butter, combine with 1/4 cup oil, sour cream, granulated  sugar and egg. Add this mixture to 2 1/2 cups flour and stir in salt and baking powder. Pour in to greased cake pan of choice. 

In a separate bowl, combine brown sugar with 1/2 stick melted butter, 1/4 cup oil and 3/4 cups of flour(or enough to make the mixture into a nice crumbly topping. Scatter on batter in pan, pressing just enough for topping to stick to batter.

Bake at 300 for 55 minutes, cool 30 minutes, turn out onto cutting board, cut into desired sized pieces, cover and refrigerate.







The most delicious piece of coffee cake I’ve ever seen! This would be amazing for breakfast with a hot cup of Starbucks.


This was 100% successful! A rare occurrence😁
