Alice Adams Tea Cake

A Father’s Day treat, one of my mother’s treats…….call it what you will, this quick and easy little coffee cake really hits the spot. One of the best things about it is that it uses ingredients that you most likely already have in your kitchen.

3/4C sugar
1/2C (1 stick) softened butter
1 1/2C flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 beaten egg
1/2C milk, room temperature
cinnamon to taste

Mix first 4 ingredients plus cinnamon (I find about a level teaspoon is a good amount). Save 1/3 for the topping.

To the remaining amount add the egg and milk. Beat until smooth. Pour into a square or round pan. Sprinkle the topping over it.

I usually double the recipe and put it in an 8×11 pan. Of course, it will need to bake a little longer.

Enjoy!

And a Happy Father’s Day!
