This Coffee Cake is like a butter cake, that is, it’s leavened with baking powder and baking soda, not yeast. The recipe calls for buttermilk which has a thick and creamy texture with a rich tangy buttery taste that makes the cake nice and tender.
It doesn’t have coffee in it as the name suggests but it’s a cake that you’d have in a coffee shop with coffee or tea and it’s a simple informal cake. Adding the cinnamon sugar in it make it have a nice crusty finish and marble effect on the inside and great flavour.
Cinnamon Sugar Topping:
1/4 cup (55 grams) firmly packed light brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon (2 grams) ground cinnamon
2 cups (260 grams) all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup (113 grams) Margarine
1 cup (200 grams) white sugar
2 large eggs at room temperature
1 teaspoon (4 grams) pure vanilla extract
1 cup (240 ml) buttermilk
