With all those coffee shops out there – you know what I’m talking about – does anyone out there ever invite friends over to their house anymore for coffee?  Well I just did and we had a great time chatting up a storm.  I’m thinking maybe I should do it a little more often.  Time at the coffee shop for me usually means I am traveling with my husband and I have to find a place to land for a couple of hours while he works (attending meetings most of the time).  I don’t mind – I love the atmosphere of the “coffee shop” but chatting with my friend in the privacy of my home can’t be beat.

Here is a recipe I tested for my at home coffee experience.  It is called Cinnamon Crumble Coffee CakeI found it on www.bigoven.com.

Cinnamon Crumble Coffee Cake

First of all the serving size says 4 and it is baked in a 9″ x 13″ pan.  A bit crazy but probably an entry error.  This is a very rich cake and eating 1/4 of it would be almost 3 days worth of calories.

Ingredients for Cinnamon Crumble Coffee Cake:

5 cups Flour; or half all purpose & half bisquick
3 cups Sugar
1 teaspoon Salt
3 3/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 1/4 cup Vegetable oil
3 large Egg
1 1/8 cup milk
2 teaspoon Vanilla extract
2/3 stick Butter
2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 cup Nuts; ground

2. Divide this mixture – one half slightly larger than the other – into 2 bowls.

3. In the smaller portion add the eggs, milk and vanilla extract. Mix well until free of lumps ( mixture will be thin ). Pour into greased 9 x 13-inch pan.

4. In the larger portion add the butter, cinnamon & nuts. Mix with hands or pastry blender, making crumbs, leaving some large crumbs. Sprinkle over first layer in pan.

This is best served warm of course.  It is a bit heavy to my liking, so if you like rich foods this is it.  Overall it is a good recipe but not sure I will make it again.

Do you invite others over for coffee?
