Life Is Good

Life is good, especially when there’s coffee cake involvedJ.  Yum, the crumb topping.  Just a little brown sugar, b…..u….t…..t….e….r and cinnamon.  Thinking about it puts 10 pounds on each hip.  Hmmm….. that explains it!!!!  Stop thinking about it, just eat the damn thing!

Coffee Cake
1 ½ cups flour (all purpose)
¾ cup sugar
2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1/3 cup melted butter
1 ½ teaspoon vanilla
½ cup milk
1 egg

1cup brown sugar
¼ cup flour (all purpose)
¼ cup butter (room temperature)
¾ teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350.  Spray 9 inch cake pan with Pam or coat with butter. In a bowl, start combining items for coffee cake.  Flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, melted butter, vanilla, milk and egg.  Mix well with spoon until totally combined.  Place in coated cake pan.  In another bowl, make your topping.  Combine brown sugar, flour, butter, and cinnamon.  Spoon topping on top of cake mix already in pan.  Once done, place pan in oven for 25 – 30 minutes depending on your oven.  Remove and let cool for 15 minutes and serve.

Today, for the first time, I’m using the dehydrator Bulldog man bought me.  I cleaned and sliced strawberries and peeled kiwi for the first run. One more hour of dehydrating, and then I will have a final product.  Hopefully, the end result will taste fabulous.   I’m looking forward to dehydrating all kinds of fruit, vegetables, and herbs.
