14 May 2023: Cinnamon-Crisp Coffee Cake


Our Mother’s Day celebrations are a bit more low-key than most with family members spread across the continent. Usually I’ve brought something breakfast-like to my own Mom’s house and indulged in a quick visit. This year, I was looking for a sweet treat to bring and discovered this delicious coffee cake on King Arthur Baking’s recipe website.

I’ve nearly abandoned using mixes and other shortcuts to baking since 2020, preferring to bake things from scratch. So, while the 12 steps (16 if you add a confectioner’s sugar glaze – which I passed on) to this recipe may seem daunting, I’d encourage bakers to give it a try. The result was really outstanding and my only tweak for the next time will be to more carefully determine what “half” the cake batter is (maybe even measure!) so that the filling is better distributed.

The link to King Arthur’s recipe for Cinnamon-Crisp Coffee Cake can be found here.

Also true: the Cinnamon-Crisp Coffee Cake recipe is a recipe of the year. King Arthur Baking links to variations on this theme, so if you’re like me, this recipe will go into a regular rotation for every season
