Simple Coffee Cake

Here's a great easy coffee cake recipe that I recently sent with my husband to work to feed his co-workers. It's simple and easy to make with ingredients you already have in your pantry. For the buttermilk I used the homemade stuff I had from when I made Homemade Butter.(It freezes well.)
Buttermilk Coffee Cake
2 1/2 c. flour
1/2 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
3/4 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. vegetable oil (I always use mild olive oil)
Mix all together. Reserve 1 1/2 c. of the crumbles.
Add:
1 egg
1/2 c. buttermilk
1 t. baking powder
Beat well until no longer lumpy then add another 1/2 c. buttermilk. Beat about another 2 minutes. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan. Sprinkle reserved crumbs over the top. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes.
For extra toppings you could also add nuts, coconut, cinnamon, dates, or drizzled chocolate.

I want to try this but I’m a little confused about the directions. In the ingredients you list 1/2 cup of buttermilk. Then you say add another 1/2 cup of butter milk. So is it a total of 1 cup of buttermilk?
