Easter is sneaking up on me this year – it’s next Sunday!
One of my favorite things about Easter is Easter Brunch/Breakfast. Because of our church schedule this year (we go from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.) we will be having breakfast before church and Easter Dinner after church.
Whether we are having Easter breakfast or Easter brunch – a good coffeecake is a must-have on the menu.
I recently found a Copycat recipe for Starbucks Coffee Cake on a food blog I like to visit http://pickypalate.blogspot.com/
This is a simple and easy coffeecake that uses a yellow cake mix. I don’t know how it compares to the real Starbucks Coffee Cake because I have never had it. If you give this recipe a try and you’ve had the real thing – let me know how it compares.
Starbucks Coffee Cake will be part of our menu for Easter breakfast. I’ll share what’s for Easter dinner on Thursday!
Starbucks Coffee Cake
1 box yellow cake mix 9plus ingredients on back of box)
2 sticks cold, salted butter
2 1/4 cups flour
1 1/2 Tbsp. cinnamon
1 3/4 cups sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp. vanilla
Powdered sugar for dusting
Preheat oven to 350
Prepare cake mix in large bowl according to directions on box. Spray 9 x 13 pan with non-stick spray. Pour batter into pan. bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until center is just barely set.
While cake is baking, prepare crumb topping. In large bowl of electric mixer combine butter, flour, cinnamon, sugar and vanilla until all crumbly.
Immediately after cake is removed from oven, break crumb topping into marble size pieces with fingers, sprinkling over top. Put back in oven and bake an additional 10-15 minutes (topping will begin to look a less less wet/raw) let cool fully then dust with powdered sugar using a sieve.
Cut into squares and serve.
