Retro Cinnamon Sugar Coffee Cake



Retro Cinnamon Sugar Coffee Cake


A great morning treat with coffee from the 1950's and reminiscent of a great Fair Food favorite- Elephant Ears!

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 Tbs. sugar
