This delicious coffee cake is another family "Southern" favorite that both my grandmother and mother used to make. Always a big hit when I was growing up, it's wonderful served warm, with coffee, in the morning or with milk as a bedtime snack at nite. A great coffee cake to serve to guests or family.
In a bowl, combine the first five ingredients until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; set aside.
In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine dry ingredients; add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk. Stir in raisins. Spread half of batter into a greased 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Sprinkle with half of crumb mixture. Carefully spread with remaining batter and sprinkle with remaining crumbs.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean
Yield: 12 to 15 servings.
*The secret to an incredible crumb for this or any coffeecake is a simple technique; melting the butter prior to combining it with the sugar and flour...it makes all the difference.
*For softer plumper raisins; try soaking them in some hot water and dark rum (optional) for about 15 minutes, then drained well before using.
