Coffee Cake Showdown: Coffee Cake #2

This coffee cake is credited to my grandma, but it was my mom who made it often. My older sister and brother used to spend every other weekend with my parents. Yes, I'm from one of those complicated divorced families. My mom would begin making this when my dad left to get them and there would be warm coffee cake when the kids arrived for the weekend.

I know this recipe must be old because of ingredients like "fat" and directions like "cook in a moderate oven". It's very similar to the first coffee cake recipe, but this batter what much thicker- more like brownie batter- whereas yesterday's batter was more like cake batter.

Topping: Double Topping highly recommended

1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 c brown sugar
