Wednesday's Chow- Coffee Cake

Here's a side-dish from TEXAS CHUCK WAGON CUISINE: Real Cowboy Cooking by Evan Moore.  TCWC is a cute little cookbook, with lots of authentic Texas recipes.  Being the last Wednesday, here's a dessert recipe:

COFFEE CAKE

Ingredients:

1 (10-count) can buscuits, not the flaky type
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup finely chopped nuts
1/2 cup raisins
1 tsp cinnamon

Directions:

Put biscuits in bottom of a Bundt pan.  Heat other ingredients just long enough to melt sugar.  Spread mixture over the biscuits.  Bake 25 to 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

You know, I've always heard about it, but I've never actually had coffee cake. I'll have to give it a try!

Anna Kathryn Lanier said...

Yes, Caroline, me too!

Chelsea, surprisingly, coffee cake doesn't have any coffee in it...LOL. If it did, I wouldn't eat it...I really dislike the taste and smell of coffee. Not sure why, everyone else in my family does!

I am collecting so many recipes that I have to get a new folder. Thanks for all of the great ideas.

Anna Kathryn, I think they're called coffee cakes because they go so well with coffee. Like you, I don't drink coffee, but I've found coffee cake goes well with Dr Pepper or tea.
