Conference Cake

This week we are attempting a very simple and straight forward 'coffee cake" or as I'm calling it, Conference Cake.

But first, a little bit about what we did this weekend and why I'm calling this "Conference Cake". 

This weekend marked the 182nd Annual General Conference for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

General Conference is an opportunity to hear from living prophets and apostles who can provide us with counsel, guidance and inspiration from Jesus Christ, who leads our church today just like he did anciently. This conference happens twice a year and is broadcast to people worldwide. 
To learn more about our church please visit mormon.org

just us, ready to head to SLC. Isn't he the cutest? 
We went to Salt Lake City and attended one of the 4 sessions of conference. They are spread over Saturday and Sunday. It was amazing! We love being there with thousands of other people from all over the world!
Isn't that a beautiful pipe organ? 
Imagine the sound that thing can make!

Between sessions we went back to the truck and had a picnic! I know, cute right? It was fun and we didn't have to spend money at an expensive downtown restaurant!  WIN WIN!

 Look at him in those suspenders and that mustache. 
(Coming off today- end of mustache march!)

It was a great day and we had lots of fun checking out the new city creek center which had a lot of things we will never be able to afford!

So on to Conference Cake.

As Mike and I are just starting out our family we talked about traditions we want to start surrounding conference weekend and the great time that it already is.

So for Sunday I want to have a great breakfast like my mom always did for us on conference morning. She always did omelets with whatever we wanted inside! DELICIOUS!

This year we did breakfast burritos with eggs, sausage, bacon, cheese. YUM!!

Also I tried a coffee cake- I love 'coffee' cake. :) So I decided to do "Conference Cake" as part of our bi-yearly tradition!

This recipe is super easy and can be adapted to fit your family.

Conference Cake

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a 9×13 pan.

1 egg
1 cup milk
¼ cup oil
2 cups flour
¼ cup sugar
1 TBS Baking Powder
1 tsp. salt

Beat eggs, stir in milk and oil. Mix in remaining ingredients just until flour is moistened. Batter should be lumpy.

Spread into pan.

1.5 cups brown sugar (packed)
1 cup flour
1 cup oats
1.5 tsp cinnamon
2/3 cup butter or margine, soften.

Mix first four ingredients, then cut in butter until well mixed.

Put the topping on the unbaked cake batter.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes until the topping is crisp.

This was so good! My husband loved the sweet topping with the slightly crunchy texture. I loved the moisture of the cake!!
