Honey-Glazed Buttermilk Oatmeal Coffee Cake
In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup honey, 1/3 cup melted butter, the corn syrup, lemon zest and lemon juice. Stir in 1/2 cup chopped pecans. Pour into a well-greased 9x9x2-inch baking pan; set aside.Advertisement
In a blender or food processor, finely grind oats. Transfer to a large bowl. Stir in flour, brown sugar, 1/2 cup pecans, the baking powder, baking soda and salt. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. In a medium bowl, combine buttermilk, eggs, 1/4 cup melted butter and the vanilla. Add the milk mixture all at once to the flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy).
Spoon batter evenly over honey mixture. Bake in a 375° oven about 25 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven and immediately invert cake onto a serving plate. Cool about 10 minutes. Serve warm drizzled with additional honey, if you like.
Sour Milk: To make 2/3 cup sour milk, place 2 teaspoons lemon juice or vinegar in a glass measuring cup. Add enough milk to equal 2/3 cup; stir. Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes before using.
