Christmas Baking!

December is here and I have started my holiday baking!  Mrs. Marshall, one of my mother's friends, used to make a bunch of these for our church bazaar every year.  I received the recipe at my bridal shower, and then promptly 'lost' it in packing everything to be shipped from Kentucky to California!  I found it several years ago and it has become a favorite year round- both for my family, friends and neighbors!

JoAnn Marshall’s Coffee Cake

Heat oven to 350 degrees

Mix until crumbled:
3 Cups flour
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup margerine or butter, softened

Take out 1 cup and reserve for topping

Add to remaining crumble mix:

1 tsp baking soda
1 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Grease and flour pan ( either a 9x13 or 2 – 9 inch round cake pans).  Pour batter in pan, and drop reserved crumble mix on top.  Bake 40 - 45 minutes @ 350 degrees for round cake pans,
Bake 45 – 50 minutes @ 350 degrees for 9 x 13 cake pan.
This is wonderful for a hostess gift!  The Aluminum 9 inch round pans are perfect!
