coffee cake? what is this delicious cake? 

Contrary to popular belief…. coffee cake doesn’t actually have coffee in it! It is a delicious crumb cake that is paired with coffee! The vanilla and sugar in the breakfast cake has the most delicious flavor when eaten with a warm cup of coffee! My favorite coffee to pair coffee cake with is a delicious hot americano (2 shots of espresso and hot water)! YUM!

let’s start baking & brewing! 



  • 2 sticks of warm butter
  • 1 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 cup of greek yogurt
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 3 large eggs



  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 3 cups of powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of espresso grounds


  1. preheat your oven to 350° fahrenheit and grease your baking pan or bundt pan with butter and dust with flour
  2. in a bowl, cream together your butter and your sugar with a whisk until smooth and well combined
  3. add in your yogurt, baking powder, salt and vanilla and stir together
  4. next, add in your eggs one at a time and whisk into the batter until well combined
  5. next add in your flour 1/2 cup at a time to create a thicker batter
  6. whisk out all the lumps in your batter and pour 1/2 of the mixture into your cake pan
  7. in a separate bowl, melt your butter and stir into the butter your sugar and cinnamon to create a sugar paste
  8. pour your cinnamon mixture evenly over the 1/2 of the batter in the cake pan
  9. next, pour the remaining batter on top of the sugar mixture to layer the cake, batter, sugar, batter
  10. bake for 1 hour until a tooth pick inserted comes out clean and the top is golden brown
  11. let the cake rest for 30-40 minutes to cool, when cool, tip the cake out of the cake pan and set on a plate for icing
  12. in a separate bowl, whisk together your espresso, powdered sugar and milk to form a thick icing
  13. evenly drizzle the icing on top of the cake
  14. eat and enjoy with your coffee!
