Coffee Cake

This delicious cake is rich enough for dessert, but wholesome and satisfying enough for a special breakfast or afternoon snack, with or without a side of coffee.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup Brown Sugar, unpacked – light
  • 1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flour – white
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon, ground
  • 1/2 tsp Nutmeg, ground
  • 3 tbsp Butter, unsalted – cold, cubed
  • 1/2 cup Espresso or Dark Roast Coffee, brewed from *K-Cup®
  • 1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt, plain, non-fat
  • 0.67 cup Coconut Sugar
  • 1 Eggs, whole large
  • 2 Egg White
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/3 cup Whole Wheat Flour – white
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon, ground

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8x8 baking dish with butter, coconut oil, or baking spray.

2

Brew 4oz coffee for the cake batter. Let it cool while you make the streusel topping.

3

To make the streusel, combine brown sugar, nutmeg, 2 tsp of cinnamon, and ½ cup of flour in a large bowl.

4

Add the cubed butter, and, using a fork, press and mix the mixture until all dry ingredients have been thoroughly combined with the butter, creating ¼ to ½-inch crumbles. Set aside.

5

In another large bowl, mix oil, yogurt, brewed espresso/coffee, sugar, egg, egg whites, and vanilla. Set aside.

6

In a separate bowl, gently whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.

7

Gently fold dry ingredients into wet ingredients, about a cup at a time, stirring softly in between to incorporate ingredients before adding the next portion. Take care not to overmix.

8

Pour half the batter into your greased pan, followed by half of the streusel mixture, then the second half of the batter. Top with the remaining streusel.

9

Once the oven is preheated to 350°F, bake for 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to fully cool before slicing.
