Cinnamon Coffee Cake
I have a great appreciation for cinnamon because it can pretty much make any dessert taste oh so yummy. While I was still unemployed, I took it upon myself to be a good little housewife and cook and clean. This included making one of my favorite treats; cinnamon coffee cake (and no there is no coffee in it).

It was bit more difficult to make than back home because I didn't have a mixer at all so a bit of muscle power, and finding the right consistency of brown sugar, or any brown sugar at all was close to impossible. But I prevailed and the results were delicious.

Here is the recipe, don't remember who gave it to me:
1/4 cup margarine
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
4 tablespoons margarine
1/2 cup walnuts or pecans, finely chopped (I used crushed cookies)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray or oil an 9-inch square baking pan.
In a medium bowl, cream margarine and sugar; beat in egg.
Sift together flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl. Add to creamed mixture alternately with milk. Stir in vanilla extract. Pour blended mixture into prepared pan.

To make topping: In a small bowl, mix together sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut in margarine with pastry blender or fork. Spoon half over batter and swirl. Spoon remaining topping over batter and sprinkle with nuts. Bake for 30 minutes.

That is beautiful.

Well photographed and no doubt would taste great with a cup of ahwa (turkish coffee).
