Cinnamon Flop Coffee Cake


This cake is from a very old recipe & is quite common in our Pa Dutch Country. Everyone has their version & the  following recipe is mine. Out of all the cakes I love, this one is my go to stand bye when I need something comforting. Serve this cake warm or cold, in big, sugary squares with lots of coffee, tea or cold milk. Your guest will not want to leave!

4 Cups Flour
1 & 1/2 Cups Sugar
5 TSP Baking Powder ( YES 5!)
1 TSP Salt
Stir these all together the blend in 1/2 Cup Shortening until you have fine crumbs. I use the mixer. Then add the following all at once & beat well until batter is smooth:
2 Eggs
2 Cups Milk
1 TBS Vanilla ( YES 1 TBS!)
Prepare a 10 x 15 pan with spray, or grease & flour. Dump batter into prepared pan. Cover the top with 2 Cups of Brown Sugar that you spread evenly over the surface. If sugar has some lumps that is ok; I love them they melt into gooey goodness! Now sprinkle 3 TSP of cinnamon evenly over the brown sugar. I eyeball the brown sugar & cinnamon all you need is plenty of both!. Now cut 1/2 stick of salted butter into pieces and dot the top of your cinnamon sugar mixture so butter is evenly distributed.
 Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes until cake tester inserted comes out clean. Serve warm or room temperature! GREAT CAKE for coffee cake, take along to picnics but it is just one of my favorite cakes for anytime! You may add nuts or when fresh blueberries, raspberries or peaches are in season just dot the top of the batter with about 1 & 1/2 cups of fresh fruit then layer on the sugar, cinnamon & butter if you want, but I encourage you to try this just as I blogged it. The cinnamon, vanilla & butter is just a super combination!
IF YOU WANT CUT RECIPE IN 1/2 & bake in a square baking pan !
