Upcoming Coffee Cake Projects

By William Kristoph

Quick post today! I have some coffee cake project in mind for the near future. Maple Bacon Coffee Cake was definitely a hit, as was Peach Coffee Cake. I’m working on a few more ideas.

Bananas Foster Coffee Cake

My wife suggested this one. I love Bananas Foster, and I think this would pair up nicely with coffee cake. Brown sugar, mashed banana. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it.

Chocolate Coffee Cake

I’m not totally sure how I want to do this, because I’ve already made a Chocolate Chip Coconut Coffee Cake. Do I go marble? Do I whip in some sort of icing or syrup?

Pear Coffee Cake

This one is mostly about picking the right pear. My wife is the aficionado, so I’ll be asking for her advice on that.

If you stop by, leave me a note about flavors you might have in addition to what I’ve already done: Bacon, Apple, Pumpkin, Blueberry, Peach, Chocolate Chip Coconut and Plain.

Recipe Time – Maple Bacon Coffee Cake

This is what happens when you’re a guy that likes to bake coffee cakes and a friend tweets a freakin’ Bacon S’more.

You get inspired and then your pick up some bacon on the way home from work, bake it in the oven and then dump it into a coffee cake. Then you wonder why you never thought of this before. It’s sweet, it’s savory. It’s not overpowering. It looks appetizing and not like a greasy pile of cake. It’s pretty good stuff!

Recipe Time – How To Make Bill’s Killer Coffee Cake

I Love Coffee Cake

I grew up loving Drake’s Coffee Cakes. Now, as an adult, I like to make coffee cakes. Maybe it’s a weird quirk, but I pretty much love the entire process. There are good smells in the kitchen, it’s relatively easy to do and the results are quick. I like them so much that a few years ago I started making them regularly. They are great for tailgates before FSU football games. There’s no easier breakfast than a sweet breakfast that doesn’t require cleanup. The basis for Bill’s Killer Coffee Cake is found in Joy of Cooking, under “Deluxe Sunday Morning Coffee Cake.”
