Coffee Cake Bread

Coffee Cake Bread – Picture this. It’s Sunday morning. A good cup of coffee and a slice of this coffee cake.


I made this coffee cake bread late last night and I dreamt about it all night. It was late last night when I made it so I didn’t try it. Hence the dreaming part.

You don’t understand. I love my Sunday morning breakfasts. Not a Sunday goes by that I don’t make something nice for breakfast. And this coffee cake bread is the perfect complement to a good cup of coffee. To make it even more special I drizzled some caramel sauce over it, but feel free to skip it, it’s entirely optional.

Coffee cakes are easy to make, and trust me it’s a lot cheaper than the slice you buy at Starbucks. But why buy it when you can make your own and have more than enough to share with your loved ones.

So picture this. It’s Sunday morning. A good cup of coffee and a slice of this coffee cake.

It’s perfection.

It’s serenity.

    Hi Jo–just came across this recipe on Pinterest and it looks fabulous! I’m wondering if you have ever tried to freeze this? This would make a yummy Christmas gift for neighbors–it just would be easier to make ahead and freeze. Thanks!

    Niiice! Making this tomorrow, have some buttermilk to use up and my boyfriend is going away during the week so I want to do a nice leisurely breakfast! I tend to have allergic reactions to cinnamon though, so going to try out ginger here and see how that goes!

      Hi Shelly,
      That’s interesting, I’d love to know how it turns out with ginger, you could also try cocoa powder, I bet that’d be great too, or nutella, yum. :)

    What is the brown sugar mixture mentioned in step 5? Does that mean the brown sugar and cinnamon? Or something else?
