Coffee Cake!

Coffee Cake
Moravian Coffee Cake

My Grandma saved this very old recipe from years and years ago when she was young. She used to have her friends over for card games and they used to eat this delicious cake while they sipped their coffee. We do the same thing with Pudge and all the barn pals except we don’t have coffee, but carrot juice instead!

I hope that you will enjoy this wonderful recipe with your friends and play some cards while you sip your coffee drinks or cappuccinos!

Hi Friends!
It’s summertime and that means lots of fresh fruits to enjoy at picnics!! My family really enjoyed fruits especially for breakfast and snacks!!! We loved to go blueberry picking and would get the best blueberries in local farmer’s markets for our fresh baked morning muffins.

Here is our most favorite family recipe! We hope you’ll give it a try and you may also add other fruits and nuts like apples, mango, raspberries, pecans! All kinds of things! Even chocolate chips!

Ingredients:

1 egg
1/2 cup of milk
1/4 cup olive oil or any light oil
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt

Topping:
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare muffin pan by putting in muffin cups or greasing the bottom of the muffin pan. In one large bowl, beat your egg, add milk and oil. Add the dry ingredients and continue to stir, mixing well. Do not over mix the batter however! Add fruit/nuts.

For the topping mix the ingredients in a separate bowl until crumbly.

Fill each muffin cup until nearly full and put some of the topping on top of the batter for each muffin cup.

Bake 20 minutes or until muffins rise and are a nice golden brown.

Makes one dozen.

Enjoy!!
