Progressive Dinner Party

Hello All!

This will be a different post than usual. I'm participating in a blog progressive dinner with other bloggers, so I need to post my recipe for my participation. I hope to collect other recipes from other participants, but if I don't actually cook/bake anything, I won't gain anything :). Or, I can cook/bake one thing at a time.

My contribution is a coffee cake from a recipe I got from my mom, Toby Cheney; I don't know where she got the recipe:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

1 1/1 cups of sugar
1/2 cup of soft shortening
2 large eggs
1 cup of milk
3 cups of sifted flour
4 tsp. of baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla
Streusel Mixture
1 cup of brown sugar, packed
4 Tbsp. flour
4 tsp. cinnamon
4 Tbsp. melted butter
Mix sugar, shortening and eggs thoroughly.
Stir in milk.
Add vanilla.
Sift dry ingredients together, and add to first mixture a little at a time.
Spread 1/2 of batter in greased 9x13 pan
Add 1/2 of streusel mixture
Add remaining batter, and top with remaining streusel mixture

Bake at 375 for 25 to 35 minutes.
Enjoy! This is one of my favorite things!!!

Happy Holidays & Happy Reading!
