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.

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.

  1. I made the cream cheese coffee cake but it didn’t bake well in the middle. Sort of soggy.
    Any ideas why?
