Saturday and Cinnamon Coffee Cake

Hi there everyone. Oh, how I love my is so sunny outside, what a beautiful day. Maybe after I finish this post, I will run outside, (no, not literally) and take some pictures of my house, kind of like "before" and "after" pictures before things start growing and "Rebuilding Together" people get here to transform our little house. More on that on another post.
Today I am making this coffee cake. I found the recipe on Pinterest which led me to this site  Gosh the cake smells delicious!!! I did not follow the recipe to the "T"......not sure I ever follow a recipe exactly. Here is what I did:

Cinnamon Coffee Cake
2 cup low fat Bisquit
1/4 cup sugar (I used Organic Coconut Palm Sugar)
1/4 cup egg substitute (I used 1 egg)
2/3 cup skim milk (I used half milk, half water)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Mix above ingredients together. Pour into oil sprayed pan.

1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon Bisquit
1/3 cup brown sugar (I used Organic Coconut Palm Sugar)
2 Tablespoon soft butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix above ingredients, if topping is still too wet add bisquit till you get the crumbly consistency you like.

Preheat oven to 375, spray oil in a 9 inch pan (I used a glass loaf pan). Pour into a pan and sprinkle topping on the cake. Bake for 22 minutes (32 minutes if using a glass loaf pan). Stick a toothpick in cake to make sure it is done. Enjoy!!

I just took the cake out of the soon as it cools, I shall have a little slice. Here is a picture of my cake and the sugar I used.
Okay....this is really good and very easy to make for a morning breakfast. The "redhead" said she lost a lot of weight and would make this cake with scrambled eggs and fruit for breakfast. She said one slice is 230 calories and I would think it is diabetes worthy too because the organic coconut palm sugar is a all natural low glycemic sweetener. Okay....yeah, this is really a good cake.

Well, time to close here and on to other things. I am hoping to get downstairs and make a few Easter cards to place on my Etsy store....I am a little bit behind as Easter is 14 days away. Maybe I should just start working on Mother's Day cards.
For you who wonder how my tooth is doing....or the socket where the tooth was.....we are all doing fine. I am still doing the antibiotics and the pro-biotics...there is not much pain anymore. Still rinsing with salt water which makes me hungry for something to eat.
My next visit to the Dentist will be April 16th for a "deep cleaning" on half my mouth. I guess that is where they go below the gum may be painful as the whole side of the mouth needs to be numbed. I asked for the laughing gas, Dentist said they would do that for me....I am a scardy cat you know. The other half of my mouth will be done the following week. Gosh, that could be 5 lbs lost for those two episodes alone...soft foods again and lots of smoothies!!!
Well time to close, I think I said that already 3 paragraphs ago. So have a great Saturday and keep looking up!!!
Cheers ~ Louise

I used to make that coffee cake and had kind of forgotten about it. It is a really good recipe and not overly sweet either.

Have fun creating for Easter. I know you will.

Good luck at the dentist...with the gas you will be just fine..and as long as they numb you up you will be good to go. xo Diana

I like coffee cakes. That looks so good. I do not enjoy the dentist either. I love my dentist, but would rather be put to sleep. LOL. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

Hi not sweet at all, sure is good warmed up in the mic and a little butter put on it. The dentist appointment is not for 25 days...have to recoup from the tooth pulling first. I should look up on google what all in involved in a "deep cleaning" at the dentist office. Or, maybe I should not look it up. :(
