Cinnamon Flop (Coffee Cake)

Cinnamon Flop (Coffee Cake)

(8 servings)    Printable Version
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 Tablespoons butter - melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • For The Topping:
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar - packed
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter - chilled and cut into small cubes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9 x 13 or 10 x 10 baking dish by spraying the inside generously with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the vanilla to the milk and give it quick stir. Add the vanilla milk and melted butter to the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined and moistened. Transfer to prepared baking dish and smooth level with a spatula.

In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle this mixture over the batter in the pan. Shake the pan gently to distribute the topping evenly. Scatter the small cubes of butter over the topping. Press each cube into the topping so they are barely visible.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.


Cinnamon Flop In The Baking Dish

Recipe tips:

The beauty of the coffee cake are the little wells of extra flavor created by the random pockets of melting butter. Wait until the very last minute to cut your butter into small cubes. It'll be easier to work with.

Instead of a baking dish, you could use two small loaf pans.

Mid-way through the baking time, you have a chance to manipulate your topping. If it seems to be accumulating in the middle or on one side, open the oven and - carefully - push some of the topping over to bare spaces using a knife or chopstick.


In this coffee cake, cinnamon has a life of its own as it rides with brown sugar into bubbling bits of butter to make divots of gooey goodness.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Mr Breakfast for this recipe.

Made this Fri. night to have Sat. morning. One of the better coffee cake recipes I've tried. Just had a piece today (Sun.) and it still tastes very fresh. I give it an A-. Everything is great about it, except the pieces are a little too crumbly.

Wow! The whole family LOVED this recipe. I used two 8 inch round cake pans instead of the square pans called for. I doubled the topping recipe, grated apple into the cake (It gives it a bit of a unique flavor, plus it can now be called Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake), added an egg (really solves the crumbly problem), and used a little less milk and more butter. Wow! My little brother says he loves the cake more than the homemade chocolate chip cookies I make (which means a lot!) I had fun baking the cake, and it turns out great!

I did not make the recipe yet but I noticed most similar recipes uses 2 teaspoons of baking soda so I was wondering if this recipe had an error in saying 2 tablespoons of baking soda?

My family loves this cake! I added one egg so it's not so crumbly. Tastes like a cinnamon roll, yum!

I'm 16 and I made this. This is like my first attempt at coffee cake. I had fun making it but not cleaning my mess. This tastes absolutely amazing.

Made this tonight and it was delicious! I added a chopped medium apple between the batter and the topping for a little extra flavor and moisture.

Liked it. Very easy. A little more crumbly than I'd prefer but that's my only complaint. Flavor was perfect.

Thanks. It uses ingredients that we had (and usually) always have around. And it turned out terrific. The cake itself had a light texture and the topping is to die for. A little more topping mixture next time maybe.

This coffeecake is pretty good, just not special. I think I'd prefer it with some fruit and less brown sugar and cinnamon.
