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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

This was an absolute winner in my book! The only problem I had was that the two layers of cake separated from one another (maybe I added the streusel a little TOO generously?) but let's just call that built-in portion control! Read More

I was actually just looking for recipes to use up some plain yogurt and came across this. Very moist and yummy. I did add some extra yogurt (maybe 1/4c.) because the batter was so thick. I only had 3/4c. pecans but that was fine and baked for only 43 minutes. Read More
