Whole Grain Coffee Cake?!

I went there. Mhmm.

To figure out how to make coffee cake, I looked up recipes and decided to healthify this one. Don’t worry though, it still tastes sinfully delicious. And it is 100% whole wheat!

Recipe: Makes 12 servings

Batter –

1/2 cup real, organic butter

1 cup unrefined sugar

1 egg & 1 egg white

1 1/4 cup light sour cream

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 cups whole wheat pastry flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

shake salt

Topping –

1/3 cup whole wheat pastry flour

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 tbsp melted butter

1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9×19 inch baking pan.

2. In a large bowl, cream together 1 cup butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the sour cream and vanilla. Mix in 2 cups flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Spread the batter in the prepared pan.

3. Prepare the topping: In a medium bowl mix 1/3 cup flour, brown sugar, and 1 tablespoon melted butter. Sprinkle batter with the topping.

4. Bake for 35 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

5. Enjoy with a nice glass of milk or coffee! The next day, I recommend nuking it for 10 seconds.

Sheeva said it was her favorite thing that I have made. I’ll take that as a success!
