Herman Coffee Cake


Herman Coffee Cake


  • 2 cups Herman (friendship starter)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup oleo, softened
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup melted oleo


(or the 16 day friendship bread). Combine starter, salt, sugar, baking powder, eggs, cinnamon, oleo, raisins, flour, walnuts and soda. Pour into greased 9x13 pan or use 2-7 1/4" x 7 1/4" pans for freezing. Combine brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and oleo and sprinkle on unbaked cake batter. Bake 60 minutes for large loaf pan or 25 to 30 minutes for smaller loafs at 350 degrees F. Frosting 1/2 tablespoons oleo 3/4 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup milk Mix and bring to boil. Drizzle topping on hot cake. Cool and cover. If reheating after freezing, put foil on top. (The two separate toppings are optional. I make the loaves without the toppings and the cakes still taste excellent to me. Of course I always follow the 16 day process. Without the toppings, I sometimes put cream cheese on my slices; it brings out more of the sweet/sourdough taste.)
