We had company from out of town this weekend. I love having company, especially when it is dear, dear friends who are coming to visit. I have a post on “anti-procrastination” coming up, where I will talk more about our company, as I think everyone should meet them-yes, they are THAT great.
While they were here, I made coffee cake.
Our friends are coffee snobs, so I knew I would need coffee cake to go with our coffee snobbery. I left it up to them to make the coffee, and boy was it GOOD, they know coffee!
I made the coffee cake, and was really happy with it! I had never made it before, and it was on the healthy side, so I was not sure how it would turn out. I knew if it bombed, I would still be loved, because coffee is the only thing they are snobby about. 🙂
I found the recipe at Passionate Homemaking. It uses many wholesome ingredients including buttermilk, and if you read this blog regularly, you know I have a thing for buttermilk. It is part of my every week shopping trip, it is great for the gut and cheap! You can read more about the benefits of buttermilk here. (scroll down when you get to the post)
Healthy Buttermilk Coffee Cake
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup rapadura (or sucanant (whole cane sugar))
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup walnuts, optional (I left these out)
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 cup buttermilk
My friends liked it, my kids liked it, and it complimented our coffee just perfectly. I will for sure be making this again! Thanks for the recipe, Lindsey at Passionate Homemaking!
