How to make it

  • Grease a 9" cake pan and dust lightly with dried breadcrumbs
  • Cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg. Alternately add the dry, sifted ingredients and the milk with the vanilla mixed into it.
  • Pour half the batter into the prepared pan. Top with 1/2 the streusel and a bit of the coconut. Top with the remaining batter and then the streusel.
  • Bake until tests done. I find it varies greatly by the oven it's baked in, ranging from 25 minutes to 45, so just test it to be sure. That is the only "fussiness" of this recipe, it is easy and reliable.

    This recipe is delicious! Thanks for sharing.

    I ended up cooking it at 375 F for 30-35 minutes.

    I make the Bisquick Coffee Cake a lot; so much that I know the recipe by heart. This one seems a lot like it, just without the nuts or coconut. I've never thought about using ingredients like that. Sounds like a crowd pleaser!

    Not rude - asking a question. Coffee cake is often referred to as ones served with a cup of coffee where we come from. The "basic" reference is because the batter is lovely adn you can doctor up and personalize this recipe with what you include. I use chocolate chips, nuts, berries, etc. at different bakings and according to what's in my house and who's going to eat it. The cake seems to please us all in its variations and is hence fun to play with.
