Freedom in The Kitchen, Finally!

The last few days have been a little trying for our family with the renovation on the floors and the lack of furniture. It really makes you realize how much a chair means to you! We have been blessed however, we have our kitchen back. Difficulty cooking in the kitchen, or no cooking at all, for a family of our size means trouble! Monday night's dinner of pizza was conducted in my parent's not quite-so-roomy master bathroom. With a few wanderers like myself preferring the hallway or my own room. Needless to say, we are very happy to be able to get back to baking and cooking our own food, and in the right place :)

Wednesday morning I made a bee-line for the kitchen to make a coffeecake.. yummy!

Buttermilk Crumb Coffee Cake

In the Bosch mixer with the cookie paddles
(we usually use the cookie paddles for cake batters)
2 sticks softened butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 tsp. Real Salt (sea salt)
4 1/2 cups freshly ground soft wheat flour

Mix until crumbly. Remove 1 cup of crumbs and set aside. Add:
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 large eggs
1 1/3 cups buttermilk

Beat for about a minute. Pour into a greased 13"x9" baking dish. Mix in 1/2 cup crushed pecans to the reserved crumb mixture and sprinkle over the top of cake. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Enjoy!





Many blessings, ~*~Jessica~*~
Stay tuned for the giveaway to start! :)

I see you have a Bosch, we just got rid of ours. It was around 12 years old. :)
