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, for a “Breakfast for Dinner” dinner. When Kristyn (you know… the mastermind behind this amazing site!) lived in AZ, her contribution would often be Coffee Cake. For the longest time I had no interest in trying it out. Once I did, I kicked myself for taking so long to try it. It really is scrumptious (and easy to put together too!)

When we came upon this recipe for Cream Cheese Coffee Cake from my mom’s friend, we need we HAD to give it a try. I’m so glad we did. It was soft and moist and full of flavor. The creamy glaze drizzled over the top was an added bonus making it even more delicious. This is definitely another recipe that we’ll be adding to our “Breakfast for Dinner” menu.

What about you? How often does your family eat Breakfast for dinner?

Here’s the recipe:

  1. Would love to try this recipe, sounds yummy, but for reference what size pans did you use.

  2. This coffee cake is so rich and delicious! I was able to put mine in a 9×13 and bake it for 35 minutes and it turned out perfect!

  3. Great, just usr made a 8 x 8 and half is gone. Thec only problem is sunk in the middle.

  4. Thank you for the recipe! I’ve made it several times, it is moist and delicious. I like that I can reduce sugars to suit our taste and still have a great cake!

  5. I halved the recipe to make one. I cooked it in my spring form pan for 30min and it tasted awesome. I was always hesitant to make a coffee cake but this was awesome. Thank you
