Snap Doodle... Breakfast Ready in a SNAP!

This is one of the yummiest breakfasts. Warning! It isn't healthy, but boy is it yummy and slightly addicting. But what do you expect when you cut up a cube of butter and put it all over the top! There's brown sugar and cinnamon sprinkled all over the top of the batter and then when you add the butter on top, there are these deep crevices of yumminess that appear.... they are almost a little bit of heaven on your breakfast plate!

This is how it looks when it come out of the oven. Mmmm... it looks so good. Let's talk about how to make it.

First... here's the recipe....

1 egg
½ c. white sugar
1 c. milk
2 c. flour (1 cup all purpose flour, 1 cup whole wheat flour)
1 T. baking powder
pinch of salt
½ c. brown sugar
6 T. Butter

Break egg in bowl; beat slightly. Add white sugar and stir then add milk all at once. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt and then add to the liquid mixture. Pour into a greased 7½ x 12-inch pan. Sprinkle brown sugar over the batter and then sprinkle cinnamon on top. Cut butter into pieces and drop on top of the brown sugar and cinnamon. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. (Bake at 325 if you are using a glass pan.) Allow to cool for a few minutes, and then serve with cold milk. Yield: 6 servings.

First you make the batter.... Basically you will mix together the first 6 ingredients. Put that batter into a greased pan... here I am using an 8x10 pan and I've doubled the recipe. But it will look the same even in a smaller pan... The recipe calls for a 7 1/2 by 12 inch pan... If I'm making only a single recipe I will just use a 8x8 pan.

This is where the fun begins. After the batter is in the pan, you sprinkle brown sugar all over the top of it. I don't even measure this anymore. The recipe calls for a 1/2 cup... I probably use a bit more than that. Put a nice layer of brown sugar over the top of the batter.

Next comes the cinnamon. Again I don't measure this anymore, I open up the cinnamon and sprinkle a nice contrasting layer on top of the sugar.

See... a nice light and dark contrast. But it only gets better, one more layer to go. The butter layer.

This is how I like to do it. Take a softened cube of butter (again this is for a double batch, only 6 Tablespoons for a single bath). Cut the butter up into little pats. I like to cut it in half, then in half again.
Then I take each piece and cut them again into little pats.

Now you randomly sprinkle the pieces of butter all over the top, taking care to poke a few of them into the sugar and batter.

Cause when you push the butter in, ... these are the types of amazing-ness that will develop. It seems to be random where and how these crevices take shape, but they are the coveted pieces.  

Here's a close up of some of the trenches of Terrific Gooey-ness. It is a buttery, sugary pool of sweetness that tastes so good next to the bread that carries the manna of sugariness to your mouth.

Mmmmmm.... Mmmmmmmm... GOOD!

This is usually how we like to eat our Snap Doodle! A warm, gooey slice of snap doodle... a tall glass of cold milk, and some fresh fruit on the side. Perfect!
It's basically a coffee cake so you could enjoy it any time of day, but it is a great way to start off your day.
