cinnamon flop

October 14, 2011

thanks to tracy for posting this recipe!

normally suspicious of about.com’s recipes. this makes me extra-suspicious. one cup of flour?

i’ll try it anyway, because i’m curious. it’s not cookies. it’s not cake. it’s not bread. what IS it?? a flop? well, we’ll see.

* 4 Tbsp soft butter, divided
* 2/3 cup sugar
* 1 large egg, lightly beaten
* 1 tsp baking powder
* 1/4 tsp salt
* 1 cup all-purpose flour
* 1/2 cup milk
* 1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
* 1 tsp ground cinnamon


1. Preheat oven 400 degrees F. In medium bowl, cream 2 tablespoons butter, sugar, and egg. Add baking powder, salt, flour, and milk. Mix well and scrape into greased 8 X 8-inch square pan.

2. In small bowl, add 2 tablespoons soft butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Mix until crumbly. Spread crumb mixture over the top of the batter.

3. Bake cinnamon flop at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 375 degrees F and bake for another 10 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean. Serve warm or cold.

IT IS A COFFEECAKE. and it is perfect. this is my new favorite thing. i left it in an extra two minutes to caramelize the bottom. so, we’re talking crunchy brown-sugar bottom, fluffy and moist inside. highly recommended.
