Eggless Cinnamon Coffee Cake


2 cups brown sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 teaspoons cinnamon 1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Mix the sugar, flour, and butter until it has the consistency of fine crumbs. Remove 1/2 cup of crumb mixture and mix with the cinnamon and nuts; set aside for the toping. To the remaining flour mixture add baking soda, baking powder, salt, buttermilk and vanilla mixing well.
Turn the mixture into a greased 9-inch round or square cake pan. Sprinkle the reserved crumb/nut mixture over the top and bake at 375 degrees F. for about 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Haylee’s Note:
This coffee cake was pretty good, but not my favorite. I have others that I like much more. I was really craving coffee cake this morning, but all of the recipes I had called for eggs, but I didn’t have any. So, if you ever need to make coffee cake on a Sunday when you don’t have eggs, this would be my recommended recipe. Also, I used dark brown sugar, instead of regular brown sugar, so it looks darker—but it wasn’t burned.
