Apple Pie Coffee Cake with Cheddar Cheese

Whenever I bake or serve an apple pie and my grandmother is around, she always tries to convince me to put cheese on top of it. Cheese – especially cheddar cheese – and apples are a great combination general, so even though it might sound like an odd pairing as far as pie goes, the salty flavor of the cheese goes pretty well with the ...

Coffee Cake Pancakes

Coffee Cake Streusel

A good streusel topping is hard to resist. It’s one of the things that makes coffee cakes so popular, and can turn a good muffin into a great one – or at least turn it into one that looks a little more decadent. I’m sure that this is what IHOP was banking on when they introduced some “limited time only” Coffee Cake Pancakes to their ... Read More »

Coffee Cakes: Simple, Sweet, and Savory

Coffee cakes, despite their name, do not necessarily involve coffee or coffee flavoring. I find that this can confuse quite a few people the first time they hear the term. It’s also a primarily American term, so it is not really as widely known as some people might think. Coffee cakes are cakes meant to be served with coffee and are generally simple, not-too-sweet cakes ... Read More »

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 »

Baked french toast is a really great recipe to have in your repertoire. The idea behind it is that you can prepare it the night before, refrigerate it, then pop it into the oven when you wake up in the morning. It’s an ideal brunch dish because you can make as much – or as little – as you want, and unlike regular french toast, ... Read More »

Strawberry Jam Crumb Coffee Cake

Strawberry Jam Crumb Coffee Cake

┬áIs 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 »

Great Coffee Cakes, Sticky Buns, Muffins & More

Great Coffee Cakes and more!

It’s true that there are a seemingly endless variety of muffin and scone recipes when you include all the varied add-ins that can be mixed into any given batter, but when it comes to coffee cakes and breakfast pastries in general, are there really enough possibilities to fill up a 400 page book? The answer (of course) is yes. Great Coffee Cakes, Sticky Buns, Muffins ... 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 »
