Blitz Kuchen

Enjoying this super easy and super yummy coffee cake that was my Grandmother's recipe. The whole family loves it. Even my nephews have learned to make it.

My boyfriend tried it with organic milk, blueberries and a dash of whipping cream, which made for one incredible breakfast....


2 cups flour
1 ½ cups sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
3 Tbsp butter or margarine (softened but not melted)
1 cup plain yogurt or buttermilk (or 1 cup milk with 1 Tbsp lemon juice)
1 egg

Grease 2 8-inch round pans or 1 9x13 pan.
Preheat oven to 350 for round pans and 325 for 9x13 pan.
Combine dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt).
Cut in butter with a pastry blender or fork until crumbly and well mix.
Reserve 1 cup of mixture for topping.
Add buttermilk and egg to the remaining mixture; mix only until blended – do not beat.
Pour into pan.
Top with reserved mixture.
Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Bake 25 minutes for round pans. Bake 30-35 minutes for 9x13.
