Breakfast Cake

Since Leslie posted about Pea Soup, I thought I'd post about our family's favorite breakfast. (Trying to broaden my posts a bit...) This is by far my boys, age 9 and 3, most requested meal.

Growing up our mom made this cake a lot, also. It was originally called Coffee Cake, but since we aren't coffee drinkers, we just call it Breakfast Cake. I had to call mom to see where the recipe came from and she said her mom used to make it for her, also. She wasn't sure where Grandma got it...Maybe I'll have to call her, too.

I'm sure there are lots of great recipes out there for this same type of thing, but this is ours, tried and true! And we LOVE it!

Mix together:

1 cup Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/3 cup Milk
1/3 cup Sugar
1 Egg
1/4 cup Melted Butter

Spread in round cake pan or 9 x 9 pan. Set aside.

Mix together:

1/2 cup Flour
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon

Then add:
2 Tablespoons Melted Butter
and mix all topping ingredients together. Should clump together a little bit. Pour mixed topping on top of cake.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
(If your oven stinks like mine, it will take longer to cook, but when you have a good oven, it will be perfect at 20 minutes!)

We always make scrambled eggs to go along with this. Together it is a good mix of sweet and salty. Yummy!


  1. you got to double the topping as well......that is the way to go!!!!

  2. This is definitely a family classic. Our kids love it too. We, of course, have to double that recipe for our family of 7. When you double it put it in a 9 x 11 pan.

  3. I haven't made coffee/breakfast cake in a long time so I'll have to give your recipe a try. Looks yummy!

  4. I gave this recipe a try for our Sunday morning breakfast today, and it was a big hit! Everyone had seconds. Drew even asked me to make it for breakfast tomorrow. Thanks for a new favorite!

  5. Hey we're the Maughan's Nate and Ashlees good friends. They make this stuff all of the time. It's delicious!!! Yay!!! Ashlee and I have been workin on some sweet craft projects. I love your guys blog so that I can get more ideas!!!! It's great!!!

  6. This is a family tradition for us today - my mom always made 'coffee cake' (served without coffee, so I like your new name!) for Christmas morning. We put candles in it and sing happy birthday Jesus. :)
