It's Friday! It's Friday! Who's pumped for the weekend? We're supposed to have some stellar weather tomorrow. I can't wait! There is hope for Iowa after all.
Today I'd like to share with you our favorite coffee cake recipe. We call it Extra Crumble Coffee cake. Because it has extra crumble. We're also clever.
I've been doing this annoying thing lately where I eat well. Eating well has significantly decreased the amount of baked goods that I produce. So sad. Nate had treat day at work last week. Accountants don't appreciate healthy during the last few weeks of tax season which gave me the excuse to destroy my kitchen with flour and sugar. Man, it felt good.
This coffee cakes whips up quickly and is so delicious. I actually could just eat the crumble.
Extra Crumble Coffee Cake
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter, at room temperature
- You can use unsalted. Just add a little salt.
- 1 1/4 cups brown sugar, packed
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick spray.
Start by making the crumb topping. Combine the sugars and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Whisk in melted butter. Add flour and stir until moist. Grab some parchment paper and spread the mixture out until you are ready to use it. It will appear pretty wet but don't worry. It dries as you make the cake.
In a large bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, and baking soda. Using a mixer, beat butter and sugar on medium-high until light and fluffy (around 2-3 minutes). Beat in eggs (one at a time) until well combined. Beat in vanilla.
With the mixer on low, alternate adding the sour cream and the dry ingredients.
Pour the batter into prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with reserved topping. Feel free to smush some of that topping into the cake.
Place into oven and bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Enjoy your sugar high and your weekend!
