What a great coffee cake! Everyone in the house absolutely loved it. It also lends itself to great variations -- blueberry next time! Also, I guess you could use mascarpone or drained whipped ricotta instead of the cream cheese. Thanks for the great recipe. I'm not a baker, and you made me a star!!
Stop - don't look any further for possibly one of the best coffee cakes you'll ever try. I made this wonderful treat for my mother-in-law for this morning's Mother's Day breakfast. She loved it. Very easy to make. My almond extract spilled so I substituted vanilla. Wonderful. A must try!!!
Let me tell you this is just so so GOOD! I didn`t warm the preserves just scooped them onto the cheese filling. I did sub 1/2 of the sour cream for yogurt because I ran out of sour cream. I made the whole recipe in the food processor. So this wasn`t just great tasting but easy to make. I will make again! And you all must make this! Thanks!
Awesome and easy. I made this exactly as written and it turned out beautifully. I did not measure the jam. but rather just spooned a little on. When reheated this tastes like it just came out of the oven. Thanks for a great recipe.
Easy and fast. My chages were. I used lowfat greek yogurt instead of sourcream. And I used forest berry jam. Followed all the other instructions
I have been making this recipe for years, I first found it in a Pillsbury cookbook. The only difference between this recipe and the one in the Pillsberry is an extra 1/4 cup of almonds in the crumb topping. I love this recipe I usually always make it with cherry jam but I do think it needs a little extra salt unless you use salted butter, I usually always have sweet cream butter on hand so I add an extra 1/4 teaspoon salt. I love Almond extract so I always add a little bit in the bottom crust as well. Delicious!
Love, Love, Love this cake. I try to find excuses to make this delicious desert.
This is a "very" forgiving" and adaptable recipe. I put it in the wrong size pan (too small) for my first cake try. I did follow the cake directions. I did have cake overflow but evenso, while I did have to bake it 15 min. longer, it still looked great, was great and I had to mail the recipe to family members that loved it. Just made another cake for a Memorial weekend picknic. Another success. (I used a 10" pan this time.) I had to add yougurt to the sour cream I had to make the required amount.
I used a little less sugar for the cake mixture. Added 1 Tsp Vanilla to the dough mixture. Put 1 tsp. grated lemon rind in the cheese mixture used a blue berry spread with less sugar than jam and added frozen blueberries. (thawed and drained, about 1/2 cup) over the jam layer. It worked great! Thank you for the best ever recipe
This is so good. I used black raspberry jelly as that is what I had and it was exceptional. It is moist and tender. A keeper.
Oh boy, what a breakfast treat this was this morning. I am going to experiment with the fruits and will try blueberry jam next time. We just love it!
