Super Fast Coffee Cake

(9 servings)

  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts
  • 1/2 cup favorite jam or pie filling
Imagine that you have guests coming over in an hour. Naturally, you want to serve them fresh baked goods. What to do? If you work quickly and diligently, this coffee cake can be made from scratch in 45 minutes. The topping is completely up to you. I used raspberry jam for mine. I could also see it being great with strawberry jam or apple pie filling. This recipe is quite sweet. I recommend that you taste your jam or pie filling and adjust the amount of brown sugar. If your jam is exceeding sweet, you could omit the brown sugar entirely. (This recipe was tested and photographed in August 2014.)
