Coffee and Cake and Vanilla Soy Delicious

I love coffee.  I also have a bit of a sweet tooth and love coffee cake.  In my opinion, a hint of nutmeg or cinnamon goes perfectly with strong black coffee.

I have two go-to recipes for coffee cake.  I go back and forth between Vegan Brunch's coffee cake (with nutmeg) and The Joy of Vegan Baking's cinnamon coffee cake.  Last night, I chose to whip up some cinnamon cake.  I've made it so many times, I find it doesn't take long to get a piece on my plate.  In fact, I think it's pretty easy.
Here are my bowls and measuring cups, all ready to go with dry ingredients seperated from wet.  Once the oven is ready, I combine the whole wheat pastry flour cake mixture with oil, vinegar, and soy milk.  As soon as it's mixed, it goes directly in an 8 inch square glass baking dish.  Then, I add some canola oil to the crumb topping that includes brown sugar and walnuts.  I pat that on the top of the cake mixture, put it in the oven, and 35 minutes later, it's done!

Instead of enjoying this piece of cake with coffee, I treated it like dessert and added a scoop of vanilla Soy Delicious.  Yum!

The topping looks so tasty! I don't have The Joy of Vegan Baking yet, but it's on my neverending wishlist. I like your mixing bowls! :D

That looks delicious. I've not had coffee cake in years! The shame!
Happy MoFo'ing.
