Coffee Cake

So, I must be a total hypocrite when I tell Carla that messing with the flour can lead to unsatisfactory results. I couldn't find "whole wheat pastry flour" in the grocery store, [and knowing that flour is different in Canada than the U.S., I wonder if it even exists here (not that I went on an exhaustive search or something)] so I used non-whole wheat cake and pastry flour instead.

The dry ingredients.

The topping.

Wet ingredients. I used strawberry soygurt instead of vanilla.

Wet and dry together.

Unbaked cake.

Out of the oven 47 or so minutes later.

The final product.

I wish that I had put more cinnamon in the cake. I also wish it had been more moist, but that might have been solved by using the right flour (or cooking it less?). I want to try it again, maybe using all-purpose flour like Isa says in the comments section of the recipe page. Maybe a cream cheeze frosting? That always solves every problem with a cake.

ha ha, flour! Strawberry soygurt is a good idea. Let us know if you find a good recipe for cream cheeze frosting, like that stuff they make at Sweets from the Earth.

Dude, I never did ask, what's with the US flag plate? And what a great knife you must have to cut it clean like that.

I think that the addition of a cup of coffee while you're eating the cake would moisten things up nicely :) At least, that's my plan for it...

Cream cheeze frosting would be freakin' yum with the cake! What's your recipe?

Oh, I drank coffee with the cake.

My cream cheeze frosting basically involves taking some Tofutti cream cheeze, adding about a teaspoon of margarine, maybe a splash of vanilla, and then a bunch of icing sugar. I keep adding more icing sugar and stirring until it reaches the desired consistency.
