    Loving how simple this all looks! 🙂 Will have to try it! yummy!

    • It is just that easy Sarah. Having the baking mix already on hand and preparing the topping ahead of time makes it a snap to put together in the morning. 🙂

  • Glynis Jolly

    Cooking for a Diabetic can be challenging. Can this coffee cake be made with something other than white flour?

    • Hi Glynis, I know you can. I haven’t yet worked out the whole wheat or other gluten free flour ratios yet, but you have given a project to work on. 🙂

      • Glynis Jolly

        I’m thinking that it would work although the taste might be slightly different. Maybe putting lots of nuts would help with that. I’ll work on it.

  • Cheryl Therrien

    As one of those visiting bloggers I can attest to the fact that this is delicious! This is definitely a ‘go to’ recipe even for non-cooks like me. 🙂

    • Yes you were Cheryl and it was a blast. It so pleased me you enjoyed my coffee cake. 🙂

  • Janelle

    Mmmmm, coffee cake is one of my favourites.

  • Elizabeth Scott

    This is absolutely amazing. I love the fact that it is not “super sweet”. We enjoyed this on a morning when we were heading to Napa and it was a perfect breakfast.

    • Hi Elizabeth, Thanks so much my friend. I do like this coffee cake for the very same reason. 🙂

  • doreenpendgracs

    I was lucky enough to be one of the other blogger friends to enjoy that delicious coffee cake earlier this month. Thanks, indeed, Susan, for making it for us, and for sharing the recipe here.

    • Hi Doreen, It was so much fun having you in my home. It pleases me so that you enjoyed my coffee cake. :)))

  • Jeri Walker-Bickett

    Coffee cake is my Starbucks drive thru weak point, well that and salted caramel cake pops. However, sometimes it’s fresh and sometimes not so much. This would be a great recipe to share with my writing group once we got up and going again.

    • Yep, Starbucks and this coffee cake are a perfect match Jeri. It would be great for your writing g group too. Let me know when you give it a go and how everyone liked it. 🙂

  • Lorraine Marie Reguly

    I love your easy recipes. They are perfect for people who dislike a lot of steps.

    • Thanks Lorraine. I am of the same mind and look or create recipes with that in mind. 🙂

  • Jon Jefferson

    I like how you have made the main components of this make ahead items. That simplifies the process.

    • Thanks Jon. That is the key to making cooking things like this when time is limited. 🙂

  • Coffee cake for breakfast – what a novel idea! Might have to introduce this one to New Zealand!

    • It is a mainstay in our home Heather. It’s quick, easy and so delicious with a good cup of coffee. 🙂

  • Pat Ruppel

    You simply amaze me, Susan, in these great recipe treats on top of how organized you are. I truly think you are Superwoman (LOL). Have a great weekend! 🙂

    • You are much to kind. I only wish I was Pat… LOL. Have an awesome week-end too my friend. 🙂

  • Adrienne

    My Mom loves coffee cake Susan and I may just have to surprise her one morning with some of this. She’ll be so surprised that I actually made it but this recipe looks really easy.

    Thanks for sharing this. Yummy!


    • That is so cool Adrienne. I know your mom will love this coffee cake as much as you will enjoy making it for her. 🙂

  • Susan – as I’ve said before if a recipe has a long list of ingredients and instructions like “set aside til later” I turn the page. But this recipe is so simple. It’s definitely one I’m going to try. I have an envelope of “Susan’s recipes” that I’m going to try. This one will wait for company or I’ll end up eating it all myself! I love coffee cake.

    • I’m there with you Jeannette. I search hard and then create and/or modify a recipe to get it the a point when someone can say “I can make that”. 🙂

  • Debra Yearwood

    As soon as I saw the recipe I was going to ask you what you would use as a substitute for nuts, but you were waaay ahead of me. 🙂 I need to take a weekend off and just bake and cook. I know which blogger’s site will start me off. I just want to say, I always love your recipes, they never miss the mark.

    • That is cool and thank you Debra. I realize many people aren’t into nut or are allergic so it made since to talk about alternatives. I hope you can do that my friend. I know you’d have a blast. 🙂

  • Jacqueline Gum

    Just reading this had me smeliing the coffee cake! I used to make things like this all the time for comany and had forgotten how much folks really do love coffee cake fesh out of the oven. Love this recipe! It’s a keeper

    • I consider that a high complement Jacqueline, thank you. It is always fun to treat my guests with something like this. I love the smiles and goodwill it brings first thing in the morning. 🙂

  • Catarina Alexon

    Agree with Jacqueline. Sounds delicious, Susan!! Makes me crave cakes:-)

  • HomeJobsbyMOM

    I’ve only ever had coffee cakes in those little packages. I bet this tastes a billion times better. I need some coffee now 🙂

    • You would love the taste of this as apposed to the package stuff Kryslte. Give it a try. 🙂

  • This reminds me of my 7th grade after school baking class. Love it! Would love to find a gluten-free option, because wheat doesn’t go down too well for me these days.

    • Hi Natasha, I’m sure you could substitute a gluten free flour in place of the wheat flour and it would just as good. Let me know how it turns our when you do. 🙂

  • Niekka McDonald

    I’m in love! My family and I were just talking about making a coffee cake. We are going to make this and take it to my dad’s house he will love it. Oh and my son LOOOVEED the cornbread recipe. He has made it several times since you posted it lol.

    • That is awesome Niekka, I know you’ll love the coffee cake as much as your son loved the cornbread. 🙂 Have fun at your Dad’s

      • Niekka McDonald

        The coffee cake was a big hit at my dad’s house! This adds to my son’s list of recipes lol. He wants to make it again and add chocolate chips lol.

        • That so awesome. It is a favorite in my house too. I’ve never added chocolate chips, but why not. It sounds like a fun addition. 🙂
