mangia mondays 79: coffee cake

hey guys!
welcome to
a blog hop i co-host each week
with the lovely
lisa from shine your light.

this week has been awesome.
baby girl started rolling over both ways -
back to tummy & tummy to back.
she's been a lot less cranky
& she's gained so much control over her neck & head.
i know that she's only 2 months old,
but she's shown so much interest in what we're eating
that we've decided to give her a bit of rice cereal...
from a spoon!
she's done amazingly well
& loves eating like a big girl! :)

we've also entered little miss
into a gerber photo search contest through facebook.
if you guys have a facebook account,
we'd really appreciate the vote!
you can vote one time per day!

my bake lab is incredible!
we're producing so much & i'm learning tons!

this week i'm sharing
coffee cake

7 oz brown sugar
4 oz walnuts
1 1/2 oz all purpose flour
4 tsp cinnamon
2 oz butter, melted

2. cream together the sugar, butter, salt, baking soda, & baking powder.

3. blend the eggs & sour cream thoroughly & then add to the creamed mixture until absorbed. scrape down as needed & mix well on low speed.

4. add the milk & flour in three stages, alternating the flour & milk. begin with milk & end with flour.

5. place 1/4 of the batter in the bottoms of 2 prepared 8" tins. sprinkle with 1/4 of the streusel. add another layer of the cake batter to each tin then top with the remaining streusel.

  1. Hi, I hope you had a great weekend. Your baby is gorgeous and it's so exciting she's started rolling over both ways already!

    This week I've shared a healthy gluten free quinoa green smoothie that you can actually make a meal of.

    I've also shared the final results of my challenge where I just drank green smoothies all week, and what an amazing detox that was.

    Thank you so much for hosting
