1. Bear down! errrr, wishful thinking…
Congrats, Seahawks!
I am BEYOND shocked. Not because they won – I knew that would happen – but because, OMG, what the?!? I feel SO bad for the Broncos. They should get, like, 10 points for showing up?!

2. Another Hollywood talent is gone, and apparently, he went just like the rest – overdosed. So sad. Philip Seymour Hoffman, you did an amazing job while you were here. Hope you’re doing better, wherever you are. RIP.

3. Did you hear? Sarah Jessica Parker has her own shoe collection, and it will be available for purchase anytime now!? This is the END of me and my bank account. And my children’s. They don’t HAVE to go to college, do they?!

4. I need a doughnut.

5. Happy Monday, everyone! Want cake?

I Absolutely Love Fresh Baked Coffee Cake

It’s certainly no secret that I have developed an obsession for all things coffee cake. I LOVE this stuff. Best part of waking up is (Folgers in your cup!) knowing that you’re about to have a cup of coffee, AND knowing that you’re ABOUT to have a slice of this amazing cake.

And, not sure about you, but I’m also a snob when it comes to coffee cake. It has to be fresh. Like, no, do not bring me the Entenmann’s stuff. Ain’t gonna happen. It has to be from-oven-to-table. Sorry. That’s just the way it is. Muffins, too.

Also? The streusel. Yah. I can graze on that all day. It’s incredible. Some oats, brown sugar and butter – simple, delicious, comforting, and sweet.

This title is missing one more word, but it was getting ridiculously long, so I shortened it. The word “yogurt” should be up there, as well. I was staring down 2 Yoplaits and decided to throw them in here, for good measure. BEST idea, EVER.

What’s better is that this cake is all made in one bowl. Just one. Throw everything in it, give it a whisk, and pour it in a tin. BAM! Emeril style.

Hope you have a chance to make this. It’s so super easy to make and, if it helps, ONE BOWL. I think you will want to marry it. It’s THAT good.

  1. Your recipe calls for 8inch cake tin, I have 9×5 loaf pan will that be okay to use or it has to be 8inch? Also I was wondering could I use a disposable aluminum tins/loaf pans for your recipe?

      Yes, a loaf pan is OK to use. However, I haven’t tried making this in an aluminum loaf pan, so I don’t actually know how well that will work.

  2. If working with almond flour you probably can take 20 minutes off the baking tine…start checking after 45 minutes! Great recipe!

  3. Katerina, have you tried making this with almond flour instead of all-purpose? I am trying to reduce the amount of gluten in my and my family’s diet, and am wondering if this would work w/almond flour.

      Hi, Ellen! Unfortunately, I have not tried making it with almond flour. I have read up a lot about baking with almond flour and in some instances it states that you can most definitely use it in equal amounts as the flour, but because I have never tried it in this recipe, I can’t say that it will definitely work here. Please let me know if you give it a shot! Have a great day!!

  4. Well I am not a Seahawk fan; 49ers fan actually. I have to say I looked up this pin to get the recipe for the Very Berry Coffee Cake, and your blog made me laugh about the shoes. Awesome! I will have to try this recipe-quick question, do you think it will lose flavor if I replace the butter with applesauce instead? any other ideas besides butter? How about using frozen berries? Thank you, your recipes look great!

      Hi Roxana! You know, I honestly don’t have a clue as to how applesauce would work in this. Sorry! BUT, frozen fruit does work! That I know! haha 😀 You don’t even have to thaw it – just break up the fruit with a fork and add to the mixture.

    Berry yogurt! What a terrific idea. It looks fantastic. My only problem is that I’d be picking off all that crazy good streusel topping first.

      I think that would work, just don’t thaw it… or thaw it enough to break up the berries. If you thaw it, you will end up with way too much liquid.
