I first sampled this coffee cake at an inn that serves a marvelous breakfast for its guests. It has a pretty cinnamon swirl and a hint of cardamom flavor. I like to make it for my Thursday morning quilt group. -Stell Pierce, Franklin, Virginia

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • FILLING:
  • 1/2 cup 4% cottage cheese

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. In another bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Beat in the eggs, milk, butter and vanilla; gradually add to dry ingredients, beating until combined.
  2. For filling, combine cottage cheese, sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.
