#2581 - Fluffy Coffee Cake

(by Shirley McNevich)

Batter: 2 cups flour; 2 1/4 tsp. baking powder; 3/4 cup Domino's Superfine sugar; 3/4 tsp. salt; 2 eggs; 1/2 cup milk; 1/2 cup canola oil

Crumbs: 1/3 cup Domino's dark brown sugar (packed); 3 TBSP flour; 1 tsp. cinnamon; 2 TBSP softened butter; 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Into a bowl sift the flour, baking powder, superfine sugar and salt--stir until mixed. In a separate bowl add eggs--beat with a whisk. Add milk and canola oil--beat until mixed. Slowly add flour mixture to the egg mixture while stirring--stir just until mixed. Pour batter into a greased 9" square cake pan. In a bowl add brown sugar, 3 TBSP flour, cinnamon, chopped nuts and softened butter--mix with a pastry blender to make crumbs. Sprinkle the crumb mixture over the batter in the cake pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes. If you don't have superfine sugar, you can substitute for it using regular white sugar but the coffee cake will be dense rather than light and fluffy.
