Awesome Yogurt Coffee Cake with Brown Sugar-Cinnamon Topping


This coffee cake with yogurt has become a family favorite for breakfast. Just the right amount of sweetness with a firm, moist, flavorful cake. I have tried this recipe using different flavors of yogurt - although many seem to have no effect on flavor, the lemon is my favorite.

1 Bundt(R) cake


Brown Sugar-Cinnamon Topping:

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • ½ cup chopped walnuts

  • ½ cup chopped pecans

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup softened butter

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • Cake:

  • cooking spray

  • 1 ½ cups white sugar

  • 1 cup yogurt

  • ¾ cup softened butter

  • 2 eggs

  • cup milk

  • 4 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour


  1. Mix together brown sugar, walnuts, pecans, flour, butter, and cinnamon for the topping in a bowl until crumbly; set aside.

  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray a fluted tube pan (such as Bundt®) with cooking spray.

  3. Combine sugar, yogurt, butter, eggs, milk, baking powder, and salt for the cake in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Slowly mix in flour until combined; batter will be thick. Pour 1/2 of the batter into the bottom of the prepared pan. Generously spread 1/2 of the brown sugar-cinnamon topping over top. Top with remaining batter and then remaining topping.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Run a table knife around the edges to loosen. Invert carefully onto a cooling rack, then place brown sugar-cinnamon side up on a plate to serve.
