Homemade Coffee Cake Recipes

This homemade coffee cake recipe produces a cake that is so moist - a wonderful morning snack.


1/2 cup shortening
1 cup white sugar

1 cup sour cream
2 eggs
1 tsp homemade pure vanilla extract

2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt

1/4 cup white sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped nuts

PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees and grease and flour a tube pan.

Alternate 1 layer of batter, 1 layer of filling, etc. Pour into prepared angel food cake pan and bake for 50 minutes.

I top it with my cream cheese frosting. If you don't want it to taste like "cream cheese" - just add half of the amount.


1/2 to one (8oz) pkg cream cheese, at room temperature
1/4 cup butter, at room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup whipped cream

Beat softened cream cheese with vanilla until creamy and smooth. Then add softened butter a little at time, beating that until smooth. Finally, add whipped cream first and then powdered sugar to taste (I usually don't use the full amount).


1 cup homemade buttermilk
1/4 cup poppy seeds
1 cup butter
1-1/2 cups white sugar
4 beaten egg whites
1 tsp almond extract
1 tsp homemade pure vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

2 TBS white sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees. Grease tube pan.

Soak buttermilk and poppy seeds. Cream the butter and sugar. Add egg yolks, almond and vanilla extract. Sift flour, soda and salt.

Add flour mixture alternately with milk and poppy seeds. Fold in stiffly beaten egg whites. Put half of the batter into the prepared pan and sprinkle with half of the sugar/cinnamon mixture. Pour the remaining batter in and top with the remaining sugar/cinnamon mixture. Bake for one hour.

Love this homemade coffee cake recipe. A different twist on the usual coffee cake.


1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
2 cups flour
2-1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
1 can cherry or blueberry pie filling

PREHEAT oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9x13 inch pan.

Cream shortening and sugar. Beat in egg. Add dry ingredients alternately with milk. Spread in prepared pan. Cover evenly with pie filling.

3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter

Cut the butter into the topping ingredients and sprinkle over pie filling. Bake 30 to 35 minutes. Serve warm.

Love blueberries? This homemade coffee cake recipe is bursting with blueberry flavor.

If you do use frozen blueberries do not thaw the berries. Place them on a paper towel to absorb the frost if there is any.

Mix them with 1 tablespoon of flour very gently and fold into the batter.

The blueberries will not bleed and not end up on the bottom of the pan.


1/4 cup homemade unsalted butter, softened
2 tsp homemade pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups blueberries

3/4 cup homemade brown sugar, packed
3 TBS flour
1/2 cup slivered almonds
3 TBS butter

PREHEAT oven to 375 degrees. Grease and flour a 9 inch spring-form pan.

Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated.

Stir in the blueberries. Pour batter into prepared pan. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, 3 tablespoons flour, cinnamon and chopped pecans. Cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over the batter.

Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.
