Real Men Cook: Delicious Coffee Cake

Delicious Coffee Cake

Alright… we have officially changed the name from “Helping Hubbie” to “Real Men Cook.” πŸ™‚ I think it conveys what the goal is, which is to help our “Real Men” learn how to “Cook”. {or add to what they already know} I really like it, so thank you to all of you who helped with the name change!

Todays recipe is actually really close to my husbands heart. It is a family recipe that his grandma use to make all the time and has been passed down to us! πŸ™‚ I make it on occasion, mostly because there’s TONS of sugar. But whenever I do, people always want the recipe. {thanks grandma!}

My good friend Rachel has been asking me for a while to, “post that coffee cake recipe on the blog.” So here you go Rachel! Now, go make a warm cup of coffee or latte and start making this Delicious Coffee Cake. It is a great and easy coffee cake recipe for your man to have in his back pocket. Enjoy!

Men!! This is perfect to make for your wife on Mothers Day and prove that Real Men Cook! πŸ™‚

To get started, preheat oven to 350ΒΊ.Β  In a stand mixer {use the whisk attachment}, add 2 1/2 cups of flour, 1 cup of packed brown sugar, 3/4 cup of white sugar, 3/4 cup of vegetable oil, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg.

  1. You can’t ever go wrong with a recipe that involves a crumble topping. That’s my theory, anyway. Found you via the Foodie Friday link up. This looks very yummy and is going on my baking to-do list. Thanks for sharing, Krista!!

  2. Krista, my can’t get it under control sweet tooth is screaming for some coffee cake! I love all the spices in this recipe. Now, my husband cooks, but doesn’t really bake, so maybe I’ll print this out and….tape it to the remote! THEN he’ll get the message! πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing and wishing you the happiest Mother’s Day!
