Poppy's Bishop Bread

February 3, 2009

My grandmother, whom we called Poppy, made a fantastic coffeecake called Bishop Bread. It is a favorite of our fishermen, tourists, AND Twilight Fans. I'm sure that if Edward ate anything, he would like it too. Here is the recipe:

2 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
a pinch of salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cloves
Combine the above ingredients and save out 1 cup of the mixture to use as a topping.

Add to the remaining mixture:
1 beaten egg
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon baking soda dissolved in a little bit of hot water.

Mix together and pour into a 9 x 13 greased baking pan. Sprinkle reserved topping evenly over the top of the mix and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
