Before the clock strikes midnight, I wanted to give you this coffee cake recipe I used tonight. Having a streak of not following recipes, I kinda created a variation. I best like cooking/baking by using a recipe as a springboard to creating something new. Most often it doesn't work out too well, but sometimes I hit gold :)
Anyway, I hope you enjoy this recipe!
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup milk, or as needed
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter

2.In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Crack an egg into a measuring cup and then fill add milk to make 1 cup. Stir in vanilla. Pour into crumb mixture and mix just until moistened. Spread into prepared pan. Sprinkle top with streusel.
