Apricots n’ Cream Upside Down Cake

Apricots n' Cream Upside Down Cake

Apricots are a slightly under-appreciated fruit. They are delicious and sweet, with an almost honeyed flavor when they’re perfectly ripe, but they don’t find their way into baked goods like pies and cobblers as often as other stone fruits do. Apricots are great for baking, however. They have an excellent flavor and are firm enough to stand up to a little time in the oven ... Read More »

Biscoff Swirl Coffee Cake

Biscoff Swirl Coffee Cake

Biscoff spread – the addictive brown sugar cookie spread with the consistency of peanut butter – is popping up more and more places these days, and as it gets more popular, I’m looking out for more opportunities to use it up. It’s delicious spread on toast, of course, but it also makes a tasty batch of cookies and a delicious topping for cupcakes. It is ... Read More »

Cranberry Nut Coffee Cake

Cranberry Nut Coffee Cake

A basic cinnamon streusel is a classic topping for coffee cake, but coffee cakes, like muffins, are things that can easily be transformed by the addition of a few flavorful extra ingredients. There is no cinnamon in sight in this Cranberry Nut Coffee Cake, but there are lots of crunchy pecans, sweet-tart dried cranberries and a brown sugar streusel – all of which will make ...

Lemon Blackberry Coffee Cake with Lemon Streusel

Lemon Blackberry Coffee Cake

This Lemon Blackberry Coffee Cake is another recipe that takes advantage of fresh, summertime berries. I, obviously, used blackberries in this case. Blueberries are definitely more popular for muffins and coffee cakes than blackberries are, since they tend to hold their shape and not “bleed” too much juice into a baked good. But there are advantages to using bigger, juicer berries: the fresh blackberries give ... Read More »

LA Schools Coffee Cake

School lunches these days aren’t typically anything to write home about, although there are plenty of chefs, parents, students and other activists out there trying to change school lunches to be healthier, fresher and tastier. But school lunches weren’t always something to dread. In fact, they used to be downright tasty – even in the Los Angeles Unified School District, which is the biggest school ... Read More »

Blueberry and White Chocolate Coffee Cake

Blueberry and White Chocolate Coffee Cake

Sometimes, the best part of a coffee cake is the crumble topping that sits on top of it. Other times, the cake itself is so tasty that the coffee cake actually needs no topping at all to be good. I would put this Blueberry and White Chocolate Coffee Cake into the latter category. It is a moist, tender and flavorful cake that, despite the fact ... Read More »

Coffee Cake Muffins

Single Serving Coffee Cake, with bite

Martha Stewart has a lot of great recipes in the many books that she has put out and there are a few that I go back to time and again. One of them is for a New York Crumb Cake, a coffee cake that is loaded with deliciously spiced streusel topping. I am a big fan of coffee cakes in general (who doesn’t like streusel?) ...

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Coffee Cake

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Coffee Cake

An oatmeal raisin cookie sounds like a simple thing – and it can be, judging by the number of totally mediocre oatmeal raisin cookies that are out there – but when you get a good one, it can be heavenly. It will have just the right amount of cinnamon to set off the buttery notes in the nutty, oatmeal-packed dough, and highlight plump, sweet raisins. ... Read More »
