LAUSD Coffee Cake Recipe


For those of you that didn’t catch this recipe when it was posted on every website as who doesn’t love the coffee cake from LAUSD!! I remember it was the only thing I ate at school, a while back my son got hold of the recipe only to lost it. So here it is:


  • Bakers’ flour – 2 ½ cups
  • Brown sugar, packed – 1 cup
  • Granulated sugar – ½ cup + 1 tbsp
  • Salt – 1 tsp.
  • Nutmeg – 1 tsp.
  • Salad oil – ¾ cup
  • Cinnamon – 1 tsp.
  • Baking soda – 1 tsp.
  • Baking powder – 1 tsp.
  • Egg – 1 (large size)
  • Buttermilk – 1 cup

Combine the first six ingredients. Mix until crumbly. Reserve ½ cup of the above for topping. To this add the cinnamon. Combine the last four ingredients and add to the first mixture. Blend together, but do not over-mix. Put in a greased 9” x 13” cake pan. Sprinkle the cinnamon crumb topping over the top of the batter. Bake at 350 to 375 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes.
