Fall-O me in to the kitchen for Overnight Coffee Cake
Cinnamon is my favorite Fall spice to cook with. And this coffee cake is loaded with cinnamon!
I found this recipe in Gooseberry Patch Quick and Easy Family Favorites, so I knew it was a tried and true recipe. It's definitely our new family favorite!
OVERNIGHT COFFEE CAKE
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed and divided
2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup buttermilk
2/3 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted (I didn't toast mine)
Blend on low speed of an electric mixer until moistened; increase speed to medium and blend 3 more minutes.
Spoon batter into a greased and floured 13" x 9" baking pan; set aside.
Mix together remaining brown sugar, cinnamon and pecans; sprinkle over batter.
Cover and refrigerate overnight. (I only refrigerated mine for 3 hrs and it was just as moist)
Bake, uncovered, at 350* for 30 - 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Makes 12 servings.
