Coffee Cake is one of my all time favorite morning treats. It sure is delightful with a hot cup of coffee or tea.
Every time I walk into a coffee shop I stare at the pastry case and I want to shovel all their coffee cake into my mouth! I decided to try and make my own. I pretty much ate the entire pan in one weekend. Let’s say I can’t keep this around. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
- 1 package Yellow Cake Mix mix only, not prepared
- 1 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
- 1/4 cup Butter
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 1/4 cups Flour
- 2/3 cup Brown Sugar
- 1/2 cup Sugar
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- 1/2 cup Butter chilled & cut into cubes
Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 9 x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
Prepare the cake. Combine cake mix, egg, greek yogurt, melted butter, and vanilla and mix until combined. It's okay if the batter still has some lumps.
To make the crumble. Whisk together flour, brown sugar, sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Cut in chilled butter until crumbly. Set aside.
Spoon half the cake batter in the bottom of the greased baking dish. Take half of the crumble mixture and evenly sprinkle over the first layer of batter. Grease a rubber spatula and gently spread the remaining batter over the crumble (see note). Top with remaining crumble.
Bake for 30-35 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Serve warm.
This takes a little finessing but it's worth it if you just work with it. If you don't want to worry about working with the batter (which is thick) to make the layers, you can spread all of the batter in the pan, then top with all of the crumble and bake as directed.
