Comment on this recipe

This coffee cake will not last a day, as it is so good. I cut the pieces into strips. I take this a lot to church for a treat.

Ingredients

2 cups flour
1 cup (2 sticks) margarine
1 cup plus 1 to 2 tablespoons water
3 eggs
1 teaspoon almond flavoring

Frosting:
1 cup powdered sugar
2 teaspoons melted margarine
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon almond flavoring
Chopped nuts (optional)

Instructions

Mix 1 cup flour, 1 stick of margarine and 1 to 2 tablespoons of water as for a pie crust. On a lightly floured cookie sheet (15-1/2x12) roll out dough with rolling pin to fill cookie sheet. Cut down center with knife to make 2 coffee cakes. In a 3-quart pan add 1 cup water and 1 stick margarine and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add 1 cup flour. Beat until smooth. Add 3 eggs, one at a time, and beat well with mixer. Add 1 teaspoon almond flavoring, mix well and spread over the crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes. Cool.
