blue ribbon coffee cake recipeI have made this coffee cake more than I have made anything else in the last few weeks. I think that I have made over 12 cakes already (I swear that I didn’t eat them all myself). This cake is exactly what you want in a coffee cake. Moist cake, sweet, crunchy, and cinnamon-y. Perfect to have with a steamy cup of coffee. A very nice way to start a day of you ask me.

I always give my children’s new teachers a first day of school present. I think that it is a nice way to say that we are looking forward to having them as our teacher. This year, I decided to make this coffee cake from Midwest Living. It is the best and easiest coffee cake ever. I love it, and can see myself making about a thousand different variations of this cake. I think that this cake would also make a really thoughtful hostess gift.

The recipe that I have included makes 1 cake for a 10-inch tube pan. I doubled it, and made them in disposable mini tube pans.

    Wow, this looks good. Could I use a rectangular bread pan instead of the tube pan?

  2. Coffee cake is such a treat! I love this recipe, the crumble on top looks lovely!

      It really is, it seems like it is hard and needs to be saved for a special occasion, but it takes no time to get into the oven.

    Does the baking time change if you are using mini tube pans versus a 10-inch pan?

    I LOVE YOU!!!!!! I got this recipe 20 years ago off the inside of an egg carton. I never saw it again and mine had burned up in a fire!! It has been a long dry spell for my kids – 10 years.
    Guess what I’m baking tonight and taking to all my kids at their jobs tomorrow?!?!?!?!
