I hope everyone had a nice Christmas.  I had a terrific holiday!!  This year we went to the Columbus Zoo to see the Wildlights.  These were the best Christmas lights I have ever seen.

I made this coffee cake for breakfast this week since Billy and Cally are home.  Cally said it is the best Coffee Cake she has ever had.  This is my favorite Coffee Cake.  It is real similar to the Bisquick Coffee Cake.  I used salted butter in mine and when it was done you could definitely taste a sweet salty butter taste to it.

3/4 C sugar
3/4 t salt
2 1/2 t baking powder
1/4 C soft shortening ( I used butter )
3/4 C milk
1 egg

streusel filling and topping
1/2 C brown sugar
2 t cinnamon
1/2 C finely chopped pecans
2 T butter, melted

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl blend all the cake ingredients.  set aside.

Mix the streusel filling ingredients together.  set aside.

Pour half of the cake mixture into a greased 9 inch pan.  Sprinkle half of the streusel on top of the cake mixture.  Repeat with the rest of the cake mixture and then end with the rest of the streusel mixture.

Bake 25-30 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
