1 c. butter (2 sticks, 1/2 lb.)
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. flour
1 c. cornstarch
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 c. milk
2 Tbsp. butter
1/4 c. flour
1/4 c. sugar
2 Tbsp. oats
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
A quick little coffee cake rich with cinnamon with a crunchy streusel topping.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray an 8x8 square baking pan with nonstick spray.
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until well blended. Add vanilla. Beat in eggs one at a time.
In a medium bowl, sift together flour, cornstarch, cinnamon, and baking powder. (Don't skip this step; the cornstarch has a tendency to clump.)
Add dry ingredients to butter-sugar mixture. Add milk. When the batter is smooth, spread it into the prepared 8x8 square baking pan.
In a small bowl, combine cold butter with flour, sugar, oats, vanilla and cinnamon. Work with your fingers until combined. Sprinkle on top of waiting batter.
Bake at 350°F for 45 min. or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
