Walnut Orange Coffee Cake

Originally posted by Chris in Feb. 2003 WFD Thread


1 c quick-cooking oats (I use Old Fashioned)
1 1/2 c orange juice (This time I used fresh squeezed as I had many oranges to use up)
1/2 c butter
1 1/2 c sugar
1/2 c packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 t vanilla extract
1 3/4 c all-purpose flour (I use wheat)
1 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1/4 t ground cinnamon
1/2 c chopped walnuts
1 T grated orange peel

1 1/2 c packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter, cubed
3 T grated orange peel
3 T orange juice
3 c flaked coconut
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts

In a small bowl, stir oats and orange juice until softened; set aside. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars; beat in eggs and vanilla until well combined. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; add to the creamed mixture alternately with oat mixture. Stir in walnuts and orange peel. Pour into a greased 13x9x2 baking dish. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

In a small saucepan combine brown sugar, butter, orange peel and juice. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in coconut and walnuts. Gently spread over warm cake. Broil 4 inches from the heat for 2 minutes or until the topping is bubbly.

Blueberry Coffee Cake

Originally posted by barbszy in Aug 2003 WFD

(makes 1 9" square or round cake)

1 1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbl baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 stick margarine
2/3 cup milk
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract

Combine all ingredients, then add 1 cup fresh blueberries. Fold fruit in gently. It's OK if batter is a little lumpy.
Pour into greased cake pan.

1/2 stick margarine
1/3 heaping cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Mix with your fingers and crumble over cake batter.

If you don't want to bake this immediately, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate up to 24 hours.

Bake 25 minutes at 400. (might take a little more time depending on your pan. Topping should be nice and brown. It WILL sink down into the cake some). This recipe is easily doubled but I've never baked it in a large pan, I always just make a couple of small cakes.

Refrigerate cake if you're keeping it longer than overnight.

Spread half the batter into a greased 9 in sq pan. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and the 1 teaspn cinnamon. Spread remaining batter over the chips. Bake 350 for 35min. ( I used a glass 8 inch pan and baked for 38 min).

This is good warm or cold. It's light, moist and very delicious!
