Cinnamon Coffee Cake
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 1 hour + cooling
Can't wait to try this ... but a question, if the volume of Flour is SO important, why don't you weigh it? I gave up measuring so many items that were hit or miss when trying to measure volume, and just went with a Scale. Give it a try sometime, Google will have all the weights you need from somewhere.
This is a fantastIc recipe reminiscent of my childhood. For those who think ignorant the idea of an overnight coffee cake, heavy butter and eggs, or coffee in the recipe itself - this is traditional to eastern European streusels and cakes. So rather than looking juvenile, might I suggest digging through piles of cookbooks from those regions prior to making judgement calls on those asking legitimate questions.
This was absolutely delicious!! After reading through all the reviews, I decided to use 2 cups of sugar in the batter (as directed) , and the extra 3/4 as brown sugar in the layers. That was my only substitution. We will make this again very soon for sure. Excellent !!!!
Delicious and a family favorite
I have been making a variation of this coffee cake for about 40 years. I use brown sugar in my in between layers with the cinnamon and walnuts. I also add extra brown sugar along with extra cinnamon and walnuts. Then as an added bonus, I put raisins in with that special mixture. Try not to allow many raisins to be left for the topping because they tend to burn. If I do have any on top, I take a toothpick and poke them down into the batter. Then if you want to make the coffeecake look really pretty, you can take some small whole walnuts and place them around on the top.
Great recipe, thank you. Coffee cake in Europe is made with coffee. Hence the name! I don’t think it’s difficult to understand someone searching for a coffee cake recipe from anywhere in the world and finding this recipe and asking where the coffee is...when I first moved abroad I was mocked for NOT have not coffee in my coffee cake recipe. And people on here making fun of someone for asking...not kind and makes you look naive.
Wow the aroma from the kitchen when this is baking is amazing! This cake is very moist and presents beautifully. I had to bake mine a little longer but worth the wait.
