    Cool Buttermilk Coffee Cake with Raisins and sliced Almonds ...

    I had some leftover Buttermilk in the fridge from having baked a couple of batches of Buttermilk Biscuits lately and I wanted to use some more of it up. Settled on baking a pan full of Buttermilk Coffee Cake. Since I don't often stick to the recipes of things I bake I also added a bit of extra flour, an extra egg, about a cup of re-hydrated Raisins (just soaked them in some hot water for a while before using them), and about a cup of sliced Almonds. I added all of the Raisins and about 1/2 of the Almonds to the batter, then sprinkled the top with some extra Cinnamon and the other 1/2 of the sliced Almonds.





    Buttermilk Coffee Cake

    Ingredients

    • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 Tbsp of Cinnamon

    • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
    • 1 cup buttermilk
    • 2 eggs
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9x13-inch baking dish or use parchment paper to line the pan.
    2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Reserve about 1 cup butter crumbs. (I didn't and instead sprinkled on extra Cinnamon and sliced Almonds.)
    3. Stir buttermilk, eggs, and vanilla extract into remaining crumbs until batter is just combined; pour batter into prepared baking dish. Sprinkle reserved butter crumbs over batter. Optional: Add several tablespoons of brown sugar to the crumb topping before spreading it over top of the batter.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 35 minutes.
    5. Note: I bake this coffee cake with the baking dish on a silicone mat on a baking / cookie sheet to prevent burning the bottom.

    Time for a little bit of "quality control" ...

    You're welcome! (And after testing it for quality control I deemed that it was "Pretty Darn Good"!)

    When the wife has buttermilk left over from baking, I drink all of it.

    I haven't seen the south side of 200 pounds since I was about 18 years old (but in my defence I'm also 6 feet tall). Most of the baking I do is given away to family, friends, and neighbours ... I just like to cook and bake, even it many of the things that I cook or bake are things that shouldn't be in my diet!
