Quick and simple

Confession… Breakfast is not my most important meal of the day. I bet some of you are like me where mornings are crazy. So, something quick and simple is what it comes down to when choosing what to eat for breakfast.

Luckily my family gets together often to eat “breakfast for dinner”. Coffee Cake often makes the menu. It really is scrumptious and easy to put together!

It is soft, moist and full of flavor. The creamy glaze drizzled takes it over the top. This is definitely a recipe to add to your morning, or “breakfast for dinner” menu. Not going to lie – our family loves “brinner!”

Coffee cake batter in bowl

Mix and bake!

WET INGREDIENTS. Cream together butter, cream cheese, sugar and eggs. In a separate bowl, combine milk and vanilla. Add to creamed mixture, stir until well blended.

DRY INGREDIENTS. Sift dry ingredients together and then add to creamed mixture. Mix well. Spoon mixture into 2-3 greased and floured cake pans (depending on the size of your cake pan. We used 2 because our pans were a bit bigger.

TOPPING & BAKE. Mix together streusel ingredients and spread over top of pans. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

TIPs + variations

To adjust the size and make these in a  9×13 pan or into muffins simply adjust the bake times. To be extra sure insert a toothpick into the center. If it comes out clean the cake is done.

  • To make a 9×13 bake at 350 degrees F for 35 minutes. 
  • For muffins, bake at 375 degrees F for 15-17 min.

For delicious VARIATIONS try adding fruit. Blueberries, sliced peaches or sliced apples. Note: The liquid from the fruit may cause the cake to be baked longer.

Nuts are also delicious; add sliced almonds, chopped pecans or walnuts to the top of the cake to give it a delightful crunch.

Coffee cake with cream cheese

Store + reheat

Wrap tightly with plastic wrap and FREEZE in an airtight container for up to 3 months.

Remove any wrappings and REHEAT the portion in the microwave for 10 second increments until warm. To REHEAT in the oven, wrap the cake in aluminum foil. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and heat for 6-8 minutes or until warm.

    I had cream cheese I had no idea what to do with it. Thank god for your recipe, I love this coffee cake and I made it in Bundt pan. 30 minutes, tweeted it little less sugar. thank you for wonderful recipe. I took a picture of Bundt cake but I don’t see how to add here.

    1. I’m so glad you enjoyed the recipe! And I bet it looked fabulous in the Bundt cake! I’m not sure how to upload photos in the comments section but that is definitely something I will look into. Thanks!

    1. Sorry to hear you are confused. If you have any specific questions about the recipe, let us know how we can help! 🙂

  2. After 20 minutes the cake was still mostly runny in the middle. I baked it in 10 minutes increments until done.

  3. I wish there was more detail on how to add the streusel. I don’t understand how to keep it from sinking into the batter. Unless it’s supposed to sink into the batter? I thought it was more of a topping. Pictures would help…
    Other than that, nice recipe. My husband wanted coffee cake and I often find them too dry, so the cream cheese helps with that.

    1. Thanks for the feedback and for giving the recipe a try! The streusel should just be sprinkled on the top of the batter so shouldn’t sink too far down. Glad to hear you enjoyed the recipe!
