This is a tasty crumb cake recipe I got from my sister. The toffee candy really makes it special.
Toffee Bar Coffee Cake
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 6 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1 cup milk
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 5 (1.4 ounce) bars chocolate covered toffee bars, chopped
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup chopped, unsalted dry-roasted peanuts
1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9×13 inch pan. Crush toffee bars into small bits and set aside.
2 In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, brown sugar and butter; mix on low speed with an electric mixer until crumbly. Remove 1/2 cup of crumb mixture and set aside to be used for topping. Add milk, baking powder, vanilla, egg, and 1/2 cup of the crushed toffee bars; beat at low speed until well-mixed. Increase speed to medium, and beat for 1 minute. Spread batter evenly in 9×13 inch pan.
3 To make the topping: In a small bowl, mix nuts, remaining chopped toffee bars, and reserved 1/2 cup crumb mixture. Sprinkle mixture evenly over batter in pan.
4 Bake for 30 minutes, or until it tests done. Cool cake completely in pan on rack. Make about 2 1/2 hours before serving, or early the in day.
