Do you ever make something just because it reminds you of good times?
Mom used to make Cowboy Coffee Cake for special occasions. We would have it when company came and during the holidays. Cowboy Coffee Cake usually meant that good times were about to happen. I was feeling particularly nostalgic this morning so I made a batch.
Cowboy Coffee Cake
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 t salt
2 c brown sugar
2/3 c shortening
2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1 cup milk
1 T vinegar
Mix the flour, salt, sugar and shortening together until crumbly.
Add the rest of the ingredients to the remaining mix.
Pour into two 8 inch cake pans. Top with reserved mix.
Bake 375 degrees for 35 minutes.
If I do it again:
Nothing to change! This is perfect, as is.
