Peanut Butter Crumble Cake

Peanut Butter Crunch Cake

This is definitely a cake for all the peanut butter lovers out there. The cake itself is sweet, lightly spiced and moist – and it doesn’t have a speck of peanut butter in it. The crumble topping, on the other hand, is made up almost entirely of peanut butter, with just a few additional ingredients to sweeten it up and give it a better texture ... Read More »

Strawberry Jam Crumb Coffee Cake

Strawberry Jam Crumb Coffee Cake

 Is it necessary for a coffee cake to have some kind of streusel or crumb topping to be called coffee cake? I tend to think not, but with the exception of coffee cakes that are baked in bundt pans (and often have a layer of streusel running through them), it generally seems to be true. Untopped cakes can easily fall out of the coffee cake ... Read More »

Yeasted Nectarine Coffee Cake

Yeasted Nectarine Coffee Cake, unsliced

Don’t be fooled by the cake-like appearance of the treat in the photo above, nor by the name. This coffee cake has only a slightly resemblance to the moist, dense cakes you can find in just about any coffee shop. It is actually more like a sweet bread than a cake because it is made with a yeasted dough instead of being leavened with a ... Read More »

Sour Cream Streusel Coffee Cake

I like a good superlative as much as the next person, but I’m not one to throw around words like “amazing” and “the best” lightly when it comes to a recipe. In fact, I probably wouldn’t use them myself to describe this particular coffee cake. I will say, however, that the lucky people who got to sample this used those exact words to describe this ...

Cinnamon Chocolate Squares

I was asked by Sara, from i like to cook, if I would be interested in trying a couple of recipes from Dorie Greenspan’s new cookbook, Baking: From My Home to Yours, I immediately said yes. My general feeling is that no matter how many recipes or cookbooks I have (a lot is an understatement), I can always have more. Besides, new cookbooks mean new ... Read More »

Lots of Crumb Cake

Crumb cakes differ from coffee cakes, though both often have streusel or crumbs component, because a crumb cake is mostly crumb. Sure, coffee cakes will have some on top or swirled throughout, but the bulk of the batter is cake. In this instance, the bulk of the “batter” was crumb. The cake was a Martha Stewart recipe that I picked mainly on looks. Crumbs on ... Read More »

Blueberry Pecan Coffee Cake

I read quite a few food magazines every month. Given that I also have a fair number of cookbooks, recipes from other blogs and recipes that I either make up or have ideas for, I have accumulated quite a backlog of recipes and a magazine recipe has to be pretty appealing for me to bump it up in the queue. I picked up a copy ... Read More »

Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake

This is almost a repost of something I did over at Slashfood this week, but the cake is very good and I wanted to share it here, too. This Cinnamon Struesel Coffee Cake is a Martha Stewart Living recipe that I adapted by changing the spicing slightly. It was originally meant to be a cardamom streusel cake, but I was not going to toast and ... Read More »
