Coffee Cake with a Punk Kid Attitude

My kitchen was overtaken by a teenager yesterday!  My punk kid decided he wanted to get his bake on so he got busy making a coffee cake.  He didn't want me in there snapping pics so I was only able to get one surprise shot of him and then a pic of the end results.  Not the best of pics but they'll have to do.

Following in his dad's footsteps (and mine) for sure!

I will say that his coffee cake was absolute perfection and he DID say I could share the recipe.  ;)  This coffee cake came out very moist and the perfect coffee cake consistency.  Not bad for his first one, not bad at all!  This would definitely be considered a "quick" coffee cake but both he and I are excited to see the tweeks he makes next with flavors and add-ins.

Coffee Cake with a Punk Kid Attitude


  • 1 1/2 c AP flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 6 Tbs sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 c shortening
  • 1/2 c milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 Tbs butter, melted
  • 1/2 c brown sugar
  • 2 Tbs AP flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 425. Grease and flour a 9 inch square pan.
  2. In a large bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in the shortening to the size of small peas.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the egg and then stir in the milk and vanilla. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture all at once. Stir until just blended.
  4. Pour batter into prepared pan and spread evenly. Drizzle top with the melted butter.
  5. In a small bowl mix together brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Sprinkle on top of cake. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
