Coffee Cake From Cake Mix Recipe

It only takes 10 minutes to prepare this crowd favorite homemade coffee cake! A store-bought cake mix makes it even easier to make coffee cake. My family’s favorite cake is this perfectly moist yet crispy cake, and I’m sharing my easier-than-ever coffee cake recipe with you!

What Is Coffee Cake?

Every country has a unique variation of this cake, which is not made with coffee, but is served with warm coffee at coffee time. The American version of this cake is topped with streusel, and appears to have originated from Germany. With so many recipes available worldwide, we can now enjoy this delicious coffee cake wherever we are.

Is Coffee Cake The Same As Crumb Cake?

There is a difference between these two types of cakes, despite their similarity in appearance and ingredients. Crumb cake has a much thicker crumb topping and no cinnamon center, while coffee cake has a cinnamon sugar center and a thin layer of streusel.

My Tips For Coffee Cake

You can make coffee cake easily, especially with a premade cake mix. Here are some tips regarding preparation that may help:

  • In case your cake batter is too thick, you can simply add more milk to it or crack an extra egg into it. This will allow your batter to be a bit more pourable.

  • The muffin method is used in this cake. To ensure the baking powder is evenly distributed throughout the batter, you whisk the liquid ingredients together before mixing in the dry ingredients. Your coffee cake will rise nicely and evenly as a result of this.

  • When mixing batter in a recipe, do not over-mix it. Instead, stir until the ingredients are just combined. Over-mixing will develop more gluten, resulting in a cake that is too stiff.

  • You can spread the cinnamon layer by just sprinkling it on. Don’t overdo it, though!

How To Store And Freeze Coffee Cake

The texture of coffee cake improves after a day or two on the counter. The moisture remains, and it freezes well.

When freezing the cake, let it cool completely, then wrap it in plastic foil, followed by aluminum foil. This double wrap prevents the cake from drying out. To defrost, set it on the counter until room temperature.

Recipe Add-Ons

It is easy to adapt this recipe to incorporate other spices. Cinnamon is great, but it can be combined with some other spices to create something new.

You can add:

  • Add some cardamom and orange zest for an interesting twist

  • Spiced pumpkin

  • Add chopped walnuts or pecans to the topping or batter
