Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

Ever wonder why coffee cake is called coffee cake since there isn’t coffee in the cake?

A coffee cake is a single layer cake typically served with coffee (obviously) and is often served on the coffee table while entertaining guests.  A coffee cake usually has some kind of streusel topping.  

I guess you can say this cake pairs nicely with your morning coffee.  Or it is just a good excuse to eat cake in the morning.  

Today I made my Cream Cheese Coffee Cake to serve over at Christine’s Kitchen Chronicles.  Christine and I met through the Secret Recipe Club and I was thrilled when she invited me to guest post for her today.  She has so many fantastic recipes including Apple Cinnamon Truffles and Apple Pie Cookies just to name a few.  Don’t those sound great for fall!  

Grab a hot cup of coffee and come join me over at Christine’s today.

    Thank you so much for the recipe I have been looking for one like this for years. We use to buy a cream cheese coffee cake years ago at a chain store and they no longer carry it! So very anxious to make. On my agenda for tomorrow! ? Have u ever put a cream cheese type of icing or drizzle on top of it other than the icing sugar and milk. I might try it!

    Thank you for this recipe, it looks nice and moist. My husband does not like cake, but something with sour cream and cream cheese otta do it. We both love sweets with our coffee in the morning.

    Hi! I just found this pound cake recipe in an obscure area on Pinterest. I wasn’t looking, but I’m really glad to have found it, and I can’t wait to bake it! Thanks so much.

    can you tell me if I don’t have unsalted butter, can I use regular butter and leave out the 1/2 tsp of salt?
