coffee cake

For MOPS we rotate who brings food.  This is the week I am in charge of bringing a bread/pastry type thing.  I was going to make muffins, but I was out of paper muffin holders. So I made coffeecake because I had all of the ingredients.  Yes, you are reading that correctly.  I made it from scratch.
On Tuesday at the women's ministry supper/kickoff event a lady gave a cooking demonstration, and I learned a couple of things I had been doing wrong in my baking.  (I know there are hundreds of more things I am doing wrong, but for now, I have learned two or three.)  So I made a buttermilk coffeecake.  It smells good, it looks good - I wish there was a way to test it before I bring it.  But The Hubs has looked it over (and he is a much better baker than I) and has given it his approval.  He bathed and entertained Bubby while I baked, so I wasn't distracted.  Therefore, I shouldn't have the problem I had with my pumpkin pie last Thanksgiving of forgetting a key ingredient. :)
I am now in a baking mood.  I have a bread and a cobbler recipe from Tuesday night I want to try, and I also want to get some pumpkin to make some pumpkin cream cheese muffins.  If the cake is awful tomorrow, my baking mood will disappear.
