Coffee Coffee Cake

No, that is not an error in my title.  This is Coffee Coffee Cake.  Double your caffeine in the morning!


3 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 t cinnamon
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup shortening

1/2 cup chopped nuts
1 tsp cinnamon

3 tbsp instant coffee
1 cup milk
2 eggs (or 1/2 cup egg beaters)
1/8 tsp baking soda

In a bowl, stir together the flour, powder, salt, sugars and 2 tsp cinnamon.  Cut in the butter and shortening until the mixture is grainy, then remove 1 cup of the mixture to another bowl.  To that 1 cup, add the chopped nuts and remaining cinnamon, stir together and set aside.

Take the remaining flour mixture, and add the instant coffee, milk, egg and baking soda.  Beat until smooth.  Pour into a greased 13x9 baking pan.  Sprinkle the reserved flour/nut mixture evenly over the top of the batter, and bake at 350F for 28 to 32 minutes.

I made this cake while my oldest son was here, before his wedding.  I do believe he consumed 3/4 of it in about 24 hours; it was just that good.

Happy Monday, everyone!

Sounds like an excellent way to inject the caffeine.

It looks so good! I have a feeling it wouldn't last long in my house either.

I think it sounds perfect. The Knight wants to know why you ruined it with coffee.
