New York Style Coffee Cake

new york style coffee cake

Well, the snow continues to fall here in the Ozarks, and like a bear I have been hibernating inside my cave (read: house).  Unlike a bear, however, I have not been packing on my winter layer of fat:)  I have endured my healthy week, which included daily trudges to the gym and countless moments of questioning my sanity.  But at the end I was happy to be able to indulge in this yummy treat over the weekend.  A moist coffee cake with a slightly gooey center, sitting on a shortbread like crust.  It was well worth the wait!

new york style coffee cake
Coffee House Coffee Cake
Prep: 15 min;  Cook: 45 min  Servings: 9


2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp instant coffee granules
2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1 (8-oz) container sour cream
1 tsp baking soda
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Combine the flour and coffee granules in a large bowl. Add brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Stir well. Cut in the butter with a fork or pastry cutter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press half of the mixture into a lightly greased 9" square baking dish. Set aside.

In a small bowl combine the sour cream and baking soda, stirring until well mixed. Add to the remaining crumb mixture, stirring just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Add the egg, stirring gently to incorporate. Pour the sour cream mixture over the crumb crust in the pan. Sprinkle with nuts.


Bake at 350F for 45 minutes. Cool and cut into squares. **Note: When the cake is removed from the oven after 45 minutes, the center will still be slightly jiggly to the touch.  This is okay.  After cooling, the center will set up and the texture will be moist.  If you bake longer, your cake will dry out.

These photos are simply stunning! Congrats on getting out of the house and keeping up the healthy routine. I've fallen off the wagon this week and haven't had much exercise other than walking the dogs. They are happy though!
I've printed this recipe, I know it will be a family pleaser in our household!!
We are sending warm wishes your way!!

Becky said...

Your coffee cake sounds divine, especially with all the nuts on top.
Gorgeous pics.
We've had all the snow and now we'll be in the deep freeze tonight with temps at -16 below, and that's not the wind chill. Welcome to the frozen tundra in Chicago!

Wow! This looks beautiful. I have never seen a coffee cake with so many nuts as a topping. This will be a great way to use up my leftover walnuts from Christmas baking.

Lizzy said...

Oh, boy, I bet the coffee in this coffeecake imparts a marvelous flavor...and it looks beautiful with that nutty topping, too!

scrambledhenfruit said...

This coffee cake looks so good! We just joined a gym and since I've added that to my routine I'm never at home anymore to cook. One of these days I'll get organized enough to do everything I want to. :) Thanks for the giveaway- I love CSN!

Angela@RecipesFromMyMom said...

This looks like the perfect snowy day breakfast. Heck, I could eat it all day.

Steph said...

I think I could eat coffee cake all day long! I'm bad though, I like to eat all of the crumbly topping, so it's best not to leave me alone with it, or the only thing left is the cake ;)

Lauren at KeepItSweet said...

Congrats on beating out the weather and making it to the gym this week!

A SPICY PERSPECTIVE said...

My oh my, that looks like the perfect coffee cake and treat after a long week of good behavior! We've been taking care of ourselves too, only eating the sweet stuff on Saturday. It's a little tricky at times, but worth the effort. Hang in there!

I just made this today as I had all the ingredients on hand. Made it as you wrote but used walnuts.
My husband almost cried while eating it! It's a keeper!
Thanks,
Anna

Do you think the sour cream could be replaced by a low fat yoghurt?

Sprinkled with Flour said...

Hi, I've not tried the substitution, but I don't see why it wouldn't work. It's worth a try! :)

Michelle said...

Just made these tonight - MOST EXCELLENT! Thanks for a great recipe. It reminds be of an updated version of "shoo-fly cake". Saw a reader asked about using yogurt instead of sour cream....all I had on hand tonight was my own, homemade plain yogurt. I used that and sprinkled the top with crushed toasted almonds and pearl sugar for a pop of white and baked in an 8x8" pan. Delicious. Can't wait to try the recipe w/sour cream. Thank you!

Sarah said...

I am nearly two years behind everyone else but I found this cake on Pinterest looking for a new coffee cake recipe and people could not believe how tasty it was - crunchy on the bottom and moist in the middle and pretty much foolproof! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe - my husband thanks you too! And a lot of friends in South London also...
