Sourdough Coffee Cake (Recipe)

I came across this recipe at Thrifty Fun a few weeks ago, and I've already baked it twice.  Mooseman declared it the "best ever" coffee cake, so I guess it's pretty good!  And if you have the sourdough starter on hand, it's quite inexpensive to make.  I added a few handfuls of chocolate chips (as noted in the recipe), but it would be good without them, too.  (But really, why would you want to do that? LOL)
Sourdough Coffee Cake

Preheat oven to 350°F.

1 cup sourdough (starter)

1/3 cup salad oil

1 cup all purpose flour

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 egg (slightly beaten)

Combine sourdough, oil and egg. Stir together dry ingredients and add to sourdough mixture.

Put dough into greased 9 inch square pan [I used an 11x7 pan, and I sprinkled the batter with chocolate chips before I added the topping].

Sprinkle topping on (see topping recipe below).  Bake for 35 minutes.


1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 tbsp butter or margarine

1 tbsp flour

Crumble together.
