From: hartman@... (ron & sally hartman) Date: 16 Nov 1994 10:24:40 -0500 This was my mother's favorite coffee cake and probably dates from the 1940s or '50s. It's one of my favorites, too. Just writing about it makes me want to go make it. True to its name, this cake goes great with coffee.
Mix flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, salt and nutmeg. Add salad oil.
Mix well. Removed ½ cup (packed) of this mixture. Add to it the cinnamon and nuts and save for the topping.
To the original mixture add 1 beaten egg, buttermilk and soda. Pour in a 9 x 12 cake pan. Top with frostign mixture and cut through with a knife so frosting can seep into the cake. Bake 35 minutes at 375 degrees.
NOTE: When I don't have buttermilk on hand I use a cup of regular milk and add some vinegar (about 2 teaspoons). I let this sit a few minutes to sour.
