Cowboy Coffeecake


This is one of Sams favorite breakfast meals. He will even make it every so often. This is a recipe I grew up eating all the time. I still can see my dad pulling out two square tins from the oven almost every weekend and bringing them to the table, cutting his piece, and completely saturating the entire piece in butter. Awe the memories. This ones for you dad!



2 1/2 cups sifted flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups brown sugar
2/3 cup shortening
-------------------
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 TBSP vinegar to 1 cup milk
2 well beaten eggs

1- Combine flour, salt, sugar, and shortening. Mix till crumbly. Reserve 1/2 cup of the mixture aside in a small bowl (to be used as crumbly top)
2- To remaining crumbs, add baking powder, soda, and spices. Mix thoroughly. Add milk and eggs. Mix well.
3- Pour into a pan and sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.

**Randi's Side Notes**
~ So when my dad would make this he would pour the batter into two square pans and cook it for the 25- 30 minutes. He liked the cake a little thinner.
~ I however, pour all of it into a 9x13 or larger and cook it for 40-45 minutes. This makes for a fluffier thicker piece.
