Elinor's Coffee Cake


Little old ladies named Elinor make the best baked goods.  I got this recipe from a dear sweet lady I met a few years ago.  Hands down the BEST coffee cake you will ever have. 

Recipe
Ingredients:
  • Group A
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1 cup brown sugar
    • 3 cups of flour
    • 1/4 tsp coarse salt
    • 2 sticks of unsalted butter, softened
  • Group B
    • 1 tsp baking soda
    • 1 tsp baking powder
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 & 1/2 cups of buttermilk
  • Group C (topping)
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1-2 teaspoons of cinnamon
    • 1 cup chopped pecans
Step 1: Mix together the ingredients in group A, cutting the butter into the other ingredients with a pastry cutter


Step 2: Continue cutting the butter into the other ingredients until a coarse crumble forms and there are no more large chunks of butter left.  Remove one cupful of the mixture and set aside

Step 3: Meanwhile, mix together the ingredients in group B till nice and smooth

Step 4: Mix the B mixture into the A mixture and pour into a greased 13 x 9 baking dish


Step 5: Take the reserved cup from the Group A ingredient mixture and spread evenly on top of the batter

Step 6: Next, take the pecan, sugar and cinnamon mixture and spread evenly on top


Step 7: Cover the dish with foil and bake for about 45 minutes.  The cake is done when a fork or toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
