Full Answer

To prepare the coffee cake recipe, combine 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup of flour, 1/4 cup of room-temperature butter and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon in a bowl for the cake topping, and set it aside. Sift 1 1/2 cups of flour, 2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt in a separate bowl, and use a third bowl to beat together one egg, 1/3 cup of melted butter, 3/4 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of milk and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture, and combine the ingredients before pouring the batter into an 8- or 9-inch pan that has been greased and floured.

Sprinkle the topping over the cake batter, being careful to break apart any large clumps. Bake the coffee cake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Place the cake on a wire rack to begin cooling, but cut it into squares or slices while it is still slightly warm. Serve the cake with coffee for breakfast or dessert.
