Dave's birthday

Today is Dave's birthday. He asked for bacon and coffeecake for breakfast, a family walk, and a Shaw's sheet cake, and NO comments by me!! Yes, his girlfriend of almost four years could make him a wonderful cake at home, yet the boy wanted Shaw's!! Tonight, we are more than likely going to Lord Hobo, and I promise to write a review!

Cinnamon Streusel Coffeecake(Dave's Birthday treat)
Cooking Light Dec '96

1/3 cup chopped walnuts(I didnt use nuts!)
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
Cooking spray
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/3 cup vegetable oil(I used canola oil)
2 large eggs(I used 3 medium eggs)
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups low-fat buttermilk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350F.
Combine the first 4 ingredients in a small bowl, and stir well. Coat a 12-cup Bundt pan with cooking spray; sprinkle 1/3 cup of the walnut mixture into pan. Set walnut mixture aside.
Combine 1 1/4 cups sugar and vegetable oil in a large bowl, and beat at medium speed of a mixer until well-blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; stir well. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture; mix after each addition. Stir in vanilla.
Measure 2 cups of batter; set aside. Pour remaining batter into prepared pan; sprinkle remaining walnut mixture over batter. Pour reserved 2 cups batter over walnut mixture. Bake for 45 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool in pan 10 minutes on a wire rack; remove from pan. Let cool completely on wire rack.
