“I found this recipe on the Taste of Home website. It takes a little longer to prepare than most coffee cakes since you have to allow for rising time, but it is by far the best coffee cake I have ever had and well worth the extra prep time it takes!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat milk, butter 1/3 cup sugar and salt; stir until the sugar dissolves. Set aside. Mix yeast, warm water and 1 teaspoon sugar; let stand 10 minutes.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine 3 cups flour, milk mixture, yeast and eggs; beat until smooth. Add enough of the remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  3. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 6-8 minutes.
  4. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning one to grease top.
  5. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 to 1-1/2 hours.
  6. Meanwhile, prepare topping.
  7. Combine sugars, flour and cinnamon in a bowl. Cut butter into dry ingredients; set aside.

  9. With a fork, pierce entire cake top.
  10. Divide topping and sprinkle over each cake.
