Buttermilk Coffee Cake
Ingredients
  • 1 1/2  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1  cup  packed brown sugar
  • 1/3  cup  butter or margarine
  • 1  teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1/4  teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground cinnamon
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground nutmeg
  • 1/2  cup  buttermilk or sour milk*
  • 1  egg, beaten
  • 1/3  cup  chopped nuts (optional)
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375F. Grease an 8x8x2-inch baking pan; set aside. In a medium bowl stir together flour and brown sugar. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Reserve 1/2 cup of the crumb mixture to sprinkle over batter. Stir baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg into remaining crumb mixture. In a small bowl combine buttermilk and egg; add to crumb mixture, stirring just until moistened.

2. Spoon batter evenly into prepared baking pan. If desired, stir nuts into reserved crumb mixture; sprinkle over batter. Bake in the preheated oven about 25 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool slightly. Serve warm. Makes 9 servings.
