Coffee Cake

A friend of mine gave me this recipe many years ago and it is by far my favorite. It's very easy to make, simple ingredients and so delicious. You can vary the strusel by adding chopped nuts or raisins.

Coffee Cake

2 c. flour
1 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/3 c. butter or margarine
1 c. milk
1 egg

1/3 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
3 Tbsp. butter

Mix all with a fork until crumbly.

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare strusel. Combine all ingredients, beat 2 1/2 minutes. Spread 1/2 batter in pan, top with 1/2 of strusel. Add remaining batter and top with rest of batter and remaining strusel. Bake 35 - 40 minutes.
