Portland Coffee Cake

I have been feeling down with being sick and Taylor wanted some cooking time with me. We decided to make something that reminded us of home. Portland Coffee cake from Starbucks. Now this is my version of the recipe, but I gotta tell you, tastes the same! Just like it! Even Jordan came back for 3rds.


1 c flour

1 c light brown sugar packed

1/2 c butter softened

1tsp cinnamon


1 cup butter softened

3/4 c light brown sugar packed

1/2 c sugar

2 eggs

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

2 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/3 c milk

preheat oven 325°

Make topping by combining flour w/brown sugar, stick of butter and cinnamon in medium bowl. Mixture should have consistency of moist sand.

In large bowl, cream butter, brown sugar, sugar w/mixer til smooth and fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla and mix well.

In a Separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt. Add dry mixture to moist ingredients, a little at a time. Add milk and mix well. Spoon batter into 9 x 13 pan, buttered and dusted with light coating of flour.

Sprinkle crumb topping over batter, be sure topping completely covers batter. Bake cake for 50 mins or until edges begin to turn light brown.

Cool and slice. Serves 8
