The Best Coffee Cake

Here's to another recipe I found over at The Pioneer Woman..can you tell I love her recipes? If you've ever tried any of her recipes you know what I'm talking about. I used to love going out to breakfast with the hubby, but that gets expensive so I've been making it instead. Besides my Chocolate Chip Scones I made the other weekend I wanted to try this coffee cake out. Hubby had just gotten home from a long night..or should I say morning of plowing? Anyways, he walks in and asks what I'm making, I tell him coffee cake, his response was, "you like coffee cake?" Pssh, yes! :) I will admit I was a little worried I ruined it when I checked in the oven half way through the baking time and it did not look good, but once it was done it looked and smelled amazing. It took a long time to bake, but totally worth it. It really was the best coffee cake I've ever had! I omitted the walnuts that the recipe calls for, I'm just not a fan of nuts all the time. When I ate the leftovers I just warmed them up in the microwave! I urge you to make this..you will not be disappointed! I wonder what I'll be making for breakfast this weekend?...

Coffee Cake
1-1/2 stick Butter, Softened
2 cups  Sugar
3 cups Flour, Sifted
4 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Salt
1-1/4 cup Whole Milk
3 whole Egg Whites, Beaten Until Stiff

Crumb Topping:
1-1/2 stick Butter, Softened
3/4 cups Flour
1-1/2 cup Brown Sugar
2 Tablespoons Cinnamon
1-1/2 cup Pecans, Chopped


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift dry ingredients, and beat egg whites and set aside.
Cream together your butter and sugar. Add dry mix and milk alternately until combined. Don't over beat. Fold in beaten egg whites gently with a spatula. Spread in a greased line cake pan that has high sides, trust me you'll need it! In a separate bowl combine topping ingredients and sprinkle over cake. Bake 40-45 minutes or until done. Please eat this right out of the oven! Okay, maybe wait a few minutes for it to cool. :)
 By the way, my husband totally thought there were chocolate chips in this..hehe
