Wartime Wednesday: Coffee Cake with Crumb Topping.
Well, after a long hiatus, Wartime Wednesdays is back.
Each Wednesday, I'll showcase a recipe from The Victory Binding of the American Woman's Cook Book, a marvelous old tome filled with everything you could ever want to know about cooking, serving, and hostessing a dinner party. From table settings to cocktails, it's there.
This week I'm easing back into things with a rather simple breakfast food, the coffee cake.
There wasn't anything special about it, but it did it's job.
A very basic batter that nearly gave me a fit when it didn't seem to cover the bottom of the pan(?), topped with a crunchy coating made with breadcrumbs.
Well, as you can see, it rose wonderfully (thank you, baking powder), and the guys were very happy with it.
From Matt: "good breakfast food, not too sweet, tender, with a little crunchiness"
From Alex: "bit of sugar, sooo cinnamon-y, fun to eat, crunchy on the outside, tasty"
