Having a warm coffee cake on a Saturday morning is such a treat at our house. The kids often ask for some during the week and I personally I just don’t have the time to whip one up, let alone allow it to cook in time for the bus.
I recently tried a streusel filled coffee cake recipe that I split among two pans and froze the second one for those busy school mornings I want to surprise the kids with a special treat. We all love freezer meals so why not have some breakfast choices too. Making Streusel Coffee Cake is A breeze.
Streusel Filled Coffee Cake Recipe
Have you ever made a coffee cake recipe before? Don’t get scared of the idea as this one is not a flaky type of coffee cake but more of a batter filled with a delicious sugar and nut streusel. If you have nut allergies, don’t add the nuts and use some turbinado sugar for extra crunch.
OVERNIGHT COFFEE CAKE RECIPE
Not only do I like this coffee cake recipe for the ease of making it, but you could mix together all the dry ingredients the night before and then just assemble and bake it in the morning. (will have to try that next time)
MAKE THE TOPPING THE NIGHT BEFORE:
Combine all the topping ingredients in a bowl and just blend with a fork, told you this was easy so far. (you can make this part night before and store in the fridge until the next am.
MIX ALL THE DRY INGREDIENTS OF THE BATTER AND STORE IN AIRTIGHT CONTAINER
In a larger bowl mix all the cake dry ingredients (what you can do the night before) and then stir in eggs, milk, sour cream and vanilla.
Make Two from one recipe and give to a friend or neighbor
Pour into one large 9×13 pan or like me, I used 2 pans. I used one 8×8 square pan and then wanted a disposable pan to take to the beach with us. I only had a pie pan at the house but it worked great too. I was nervous the streusel would stay at the top, but the batter did raise over it.
I actually forgot to make the powdered sugar glaze, but no one missed it.
HOW TO FREEZE HOMEMADE COFFEE CAKE
I allowed the second coffee cake to cool completely, covered with tin foil then placed in a freezer bag.
TO SERVE FROZEN COFFEE CAKE
Allow it to thaw overnight and enjoy. We enjoyed the coffee cake at room temperature but you can never go wrong with a warm piece of streusel filled coffee cake!
