Cowboy Coffee Cake - 1/13/2007

2 cups flour
teaspoon salt
1 teaspoons baking powder
4 TBS butter
2 eggs
1 cup milk
cup brown sugar
cup white sugar
Zest from one lemon
Juice of half of that lemon

2 TBS butter
2 TBS flour
2 TBS brown sugar
cup nuts Mix together the flour, salt and baking powder. Cut in 4 tablespoons butter. Mix, in a separate bowl, the eggs, milk, cup brown and cup white sugar. Mix the liquid ingredients into the dry. Grate the zest into the batter and add the juice from half the lemon. Mix.

Grease and flour a 9 inch square pan. Spoon in the batter.

For the topping rub together the 2 tablespoons of butter, flour and brown sugar and sprinkle that over the top of the coffee cake. Sprinkle cup of nuts over the top.

When I was making this cake I thought I was done at this point, but one of the guides said to me, "Now for the fun part. Poke your finger into the cake and twirl in a few random places."

I was nervous about how long to bake it. We set the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit and I let it go 35 minutes total. That was actually too long because the crust on the outside was way too dark. So, the next time I do this I'll probably let it go for 30 minutes.

It was delicious with butter on it and even better once it was cooled to have with cream cheese spread on.
