Buttery Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

Oh my!!! This is one of those recipes that when you make it, part of you is super excited to have found a new incredibly delicious recipe and the other part of you is thinking... you've just doomed yourself to having to try and keep yourself from eating multiple pieces of this delicious cake throughout your day. That being said, I'm so glad I found and tried this. It is soooo good and my husband loves it too. I made it for him to have for breakfast, but it is just as good served as a dessert.



  • 1 cup butter (no substitutes)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 egg yolk(I just used a whole egg)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • 1/4 cup sugar(I used brown sugar)
  • 1/2 cup flour (I used a little more than this, to help make it a little more crumbly)
  • 1/4 cup butter (semi-soft)


Set oven to 350 degrees (oven rack set to second-lowest position). Grease a 13 x 9-inch (or an 11 x 7-inch, baking time will need to be increased slightly). Cream butter with sugar (about 3-4 minutes), add in eggs and sour cream; beat well (about another 3 minutes). In a bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt.Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture; beat well until combined (batter will be thick). Spread more than half of the batter in the prepared baking pan.In another bowl, cream together all filling ingredients, then carefully spread over the cake batter. Spoon the remaining cake batter over the top of the cheese mixture (it doesn't have to cover the cake batter completely, I just dot tablespoonfuls over the batter). For the topping (I most always double the ingredients) mix all ingredients, and sprinkle over cake. Bake for about 50-55 minutes or until middle feels set and not jiggly.

*I did not double the topping ingredients and I thought it was a good amount as is. I made the 11X7 size.


I must say that the coffee cake in the coffee cup was my daughter's idea. I thought it was a cute idea.:)
