Make your own coffee cake at home with these ingredients that can almost always be found in your cupboard.



Topping Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup old-fashioned, quick oats or nuts
  • 1 teaspoon ground spice or combination of spices
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


Cake Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup sour cream, plain yogurt or buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon citrus zest
  • 1/2 cup fresh, thawed frozen or canned fruit, drained


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray an 8- or 9-inch square pan with baking spray or use regular nonstick baking spray then sprinkle with flour.
  2. Combine all topping ingredients in a medium bowl. Use a rubber spatula to mix until the mix starts to clump together in mostly large crumbs.
  3. In a second medium bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk together well.
  4. Put the remaining ½ cup butter and granulated sugar into a large bowl or the bowl of an electric mixer. Use an electric mixer to beat the mixture at medium speed for 1 to 2 minutes, until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs one at a time. With the mixer on low, add half the flour mixture, then the sour cream and vanilla. Add remaining flour and mix just until blended. Fold in zest and fruit.
  5. Pour into prepared pan and top with crumb mixture. Bake 45 to 55 minutes, until a toothpick test in the center comes out clean.
