“This is an eggless coffecake-like cake. My Great Grandma Nell Kulp passed this depression era recipe down to my Grandmother, and then she passed it on to my Mom. Now I am passing it on to the rest of you.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix the sugar and milk together.
  3. Mix the flour and baking powder together. Sive if you would like.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet 1/4 cup at a time to help prevent lumps. The batter should be fairly smooth.
  5. Once mixed set aside and lightly butter your baking dish, this helps to prevent the cake from sticking to the sides and bottom of the dish.
  6. Pour the batter into the baking dish. Place the cubed butter on the top of the batter evenly, then sprinkle with the cinnamon.
  7. Optional toppings: Maple syrup, nuts, nutmeg, chocolate chips, etc.
