Classic Coffee Cake Recipe

It's National Coffee Cake Day (and yes that's a thing because like...why not) and we can't name a better duo than our bold, smooth, full-bodied coffee and this rich, buttery, sweet treat! Here's a great recipe if you want to try it yourself at home.

PREP TIME 25 mins COOK TIME 55 mins TOTAL TIME 80 mins SERVINGS 15 to 18 servings

(You can halve this recipe and bake it in an 8 x 8-inch pan. Start checking it for doneness after 40 minutes, but it will likely take closer to 50 minutes to bake.)

  • 1 cup (125g) all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • Pinch kosher salt

  • 1/2 cup (113g) unsalted butter, softened
