Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

Course: Coffee Cakes

Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup Butter Softened
  • 1 8- Ounce Package Cream Cheese Softened
  • 1 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/2 Cup Milk
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Cup Butter
  • 1/4 Cup Flour
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  • Approximately 1 Cup Fruit Of Your Choice Optional

Instructions

  • Cream 1/4 cup butter, cream cheese, and sugar together in large bowl. Add eggs, milk, and vanilla. Mix well.
  • In separate bowl, combine 2 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix about a third of the dry ingredients at a time into the moist batter, blending well after each addition. Pour batter into a greased, 8 inch square pan or a round layer cake pan.
  • In small bowl, mix 1/4 cup butter, 1/4 cup flour, and brown sugar together with hands or a pastry blender until coarse and crumbly. Sprinkle topping mixture over batter.
  • Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Makes 9 servings.
  • Revised recipe: Add fresh berries or another fruit of your choice to batter.

Notes

This makes a lot of batter. Recipe calls for an 8-inch square pan, but you could also put this into a 9×13-inch baking pan for a thinner coffee cake. Make sure to adjust topping proportions and baking time accordingly.
