Another coffeecake...

This recipe is from Food. com, but I'm sharing it because it is SOOO good! I find coffeecakes to be very involved and time consuming, but our family loves to eat it above other baked goods, so I don't mind making it for us. Enjoy!

Not much narrative to add tonight; X Factor is on! :O) I creamed the butter and sugar with a spoon. Obviously, go ahead with a mixer. I'm so muffin-minded that I do everything by hand!

Coffeecake batter is always so thick! I did follow directions and put more than half (2/3?) of the batter at the bottom. Greased the 9x13 with just butter.

Brief peek at the filling ingredients... 2 packs cream cheese, egg yolk, sugar and vanilla. Beat with mixer (recipe doesn't specify).

Spread whole bowl of filling over the batter in the pan. Taste some! It'll get your taste buds going for the end result! Spread remaining batter over filling (will look like not enough).

Mix the topping- flour, butter, sugar. My butter wasn't soft enough, so it didn't produce the right end result. but after baking, it looks fine.

Sprinkle (pour) topping over batter.  
I sprinkled nutmeg and cardamom over the top STRICTLY for picture purposes. :) All of my photos are white and yellow. I'm sure the flavors will accentuate the vanilla cream cheese flavor! 


1 cup butter (no substitutes)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup sour cream
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

2 (8 oz) pkgs cream cheese (softened)
1 egg yolk
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla

1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
14 cup (half stick) butter (semi softened)

Preheat oven 350F(oven rack set to second lowest position)
Grease 13.9 inch pan
CAKE: Cream butter with sugar (3-4 minutes). Add eggs and sour cream; beat well (another 3 minutes). In seperate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture; beat well until combined (batter will be thick). Spread more than half the batter in prepared pan.
FILLING: In another bowl, cream together all filling ingredients, then carefully spread over cake batter.
Spoon remaining cake batter over top of cheese mixture (it won't cover the cake batter completely).
TOPPING: Mix all ingredients and sprinkle over cake.
Bake for 50-55 minutes or until middle feels set (not jiggly).
