Baking Tips

Soften the butter to room temperature before using to make it easier to blend with the other ingredients.

When measuring flour, spoon it into a dry measuring cup and level off the excess with the smooth edge of a butter knife.

If you want your cake a little thinner you can use an 11x7 or 9x13 instead of a 9x9 pan.

You can mix in chopped walnuts or pecans to the crumble topping to add some crunch to the coffee cake.
