coffee cake!

I still have that same cold that I’ve had for about a week now, except now, my voice is all screwed up!! On Wednesday night at work, I totally lost my voice, and the next day when I would try and talk, it would be so painful I’d just want to whisper. Today it isn’t as bad, but it’s still pretty raspy and makes me have a cough when I talk too much. Because I’m not 100%, I decided I should just spend the day/night at home (even though its Friday and there is fun to be had). Earlier, I had a girlfriend over and she kept me company while I wrapped up my last Christmas gifts. We both wanted to have a snack, so I decided to make us some coffee cake! It turned out pretty good, if you ask me, I’ve already had two slices!


what you need:


  • 1 1/4 cup cake flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 6 tbs butter
  • egg
  • egg yolk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt


  • 8 tbs butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cup cake flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • powdered sugar (for dusting)

Preheat oven to 325.

In a small bowl, combine all ingredients (except the powdered sugar) and mix together until combined. Set aside for at least 10 mins.

In a mixing bowl, sift together sugar, flour, salt and baking soda. Add butter in pieces and mix on low until crumbles start to form. Add your egg and yolk, vanilla and yogurt and mix until combined, about 1 minute.

Pour into a parchment lined 9” round pan. Take your toping mix and sprinkle it all over the top. Bake for 35 mins. Cool in pan. Once removed, top with powedered sugar. ENJOY!
