Coffee Cake

  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup sour cream I used Greek yogurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Cinnamon Topping

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar lightly packed
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

Cream Cheese Glaze

  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese softened
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup confectioner's sugar


Coffee Cake

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9-inch springform pan.
  • Add the butter and sugar to the bowl of your stand mixer. Beat together until creamy.
  • In a small bowl, mix sour cream, eggs, oil, and vanilla. Slowly add the sour cream mixture to the butter mixture and beat for 3 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients in 2 additions. Beat until just combined after each addition.
  • Pour cake batter into your prepared springform pan. Set aside.

Cinnamon Topping

  • Melt butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Add brown sugar and cinnamon to butter and stir until evenly moistened.
  • Spread the topping over top of the cake mixture - similar to frosting a cake. Drag a butter knife back and forth and up and down. This will make sure that the topping is swirled into the batter and the cake is marbled after baking.
  • Place pan on a baking sheet and bake for 40-45 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan. Once the coffee cake is cooled, transfer to a serving plate.

Cream Cheese Glaze

  • In a bowl combine cream cheese, milk, and vanilla and whisk until smooth. Slowly add the confectioner's sugar and stir until smooth.
  • Either drizzle glaze over the top of the cake or spread over the coffee cake like frosting. (Glaze will drip down the sides.) Cut into 8 slices and serve.
