Coffee Cake

This is the coffee cake my family demans I bring camping with us.

1-½ stick butter, softened
2 cups sugar
3 cups flour, sifted
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1-¼ cup milk
3 whole egg whites, beaten til stiff


Topping:

1-½ stick butter, softened
¾ cups flour
1-½ cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons cinnamon
1-½ cup pecans, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt
Beat egg whites and set aside

In same mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar
Add flour mixture and milk alternately until combined; don’t overbeat
Fold in beaten egg whites with a rubber spatula until just incorporated
Spread in a well-greased 9 x 13  baking pan
In a separate bowl, combine topping ingredients with a pastry cutter until crumbly. Sprinkle all over the top
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes til a toothpick inserted comes out clean and nicely brown on top. Mine seemed done but not brown, so I turned on convection heat for a few minutes

Sounds yummy.

p.s., I don't do tents. Camping is not my thing in life.
