Beer Coffee Cake

October 3rd, 2012 by Marshall Slocum Inn

So this weekend is the International Oktoberfest here in Newport.  I thought it would be fitting to have a recipe involving beer for you all to make and enjoy whether or not you’re able to celebrate downtown.  This is a Bed & Breakfast, though, so I was hoping for a recipe your could enjoy for breakfast, but most recipes involving beer are for stews or chicken and what not.  There’s always beer bread, but thats kind of predictable.  Thankfully, I found something involving beer for the most important meal of the day, so for all you beer lovers who want to bring some beer into your breakfast, here’s a recipe for Beer Coffee Cake.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose biscuit mix
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 2/3 cup beer
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • Topping:
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped peacans

 

Directions:

  • For coffee cake: in a bowl, combine biscuit mix, sugar and ginger
  • In a separate bowl, combine beer and egg
  • Combine wet ingredients with dry ingredients, stirring lighly, just until moistened
  • Pour mixture into a greased 9-inch round cake pan
  • For topping: combine flour, sugar, cinnamon and pecans
  • Cut in butter until the mixture is crumbly
  • Sprinkle over coffee cake batter
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes
  • Serve warm or cold

Enjoy!

If you’re staying here at the Inn during Columbus Day weekend, don’t forget to check out this year’s International Oktoberfest down at the Newport Yachting Center.  Celebrate the weekend with live entertainment, family fun, international foods, and of course, BEER! The fun starts at 12pm and lasts until 8pm both Saturday and Sunday, and tickets range from $17-$40.  Quench your thirst with a variety of beers including: Warsteiner, Spaten, Amstel, Sam Adams, Harpoon, Newport Storm, Guiness, Harp and Sierra Nevada.  And when you need to fill your stomach, enjoy food from Schnitzels & Giggles, the Smoke House, and Julian’s Omnibus.  When your stomach and glass is full, spend some time listening to one of the many bands and watch the dancers that are set to take the stage.  It’s sure to be a great weekend!
