Buttery Coffee Cake

Good Friday afternoon!  Yea, Blogger is finally back up!  Sorry to keep you waiting for a new recipe post.  Between my personal schedule being hectic this past week and then Blogger going down, it's been a while, so "HELLO"!

Today's recipe is a new favorite of mine.  I made this coffee cake last weekend for our Mother's Day brunch and it was a huge hit!  How can a recipe with 3 sticks of butter in it not be good?!  Did I mention there are also 2 sticks of cream cheese and a few cups of sugar.  This is definitely a treat, but well worth it.  I hope you enjoy as much as we did. 

Buttery Coffee Cake



1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup sour cream
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt


2 (8 oz. packages) cream cheese, softened
1 egg yolk
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla


1/2 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter, softened


Preheat oven to 350* and set oven rack on lowest setting.  Grease a 9 x 13 baking pan. 

Cream butter with sugar for 3 minutes.  Add eggs and sour cream and mix an additional 3 minutes.

In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder, and salt.  Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture and beat well until combined.  Batter will be thick.

Spread half of the batter in prepared baking pan. 

In another bowl, cream together all filling ingredients until smooth, then carefully spread over the cake batter.

Spoon the remaining cake batter over the top of the cream cheese filling.  It will be more like dotting tablespoons of batter on top of the filling.

Mix all topping ingredients in a bowl and sprinkle evenly over cake.

Bake for 50-55 minutes or until middle feels set.

It is sooooo good.  I cannot wait for you to try because I know you will love!
