Heavenly Kahlua Coffee Cake with crumble topping. A breakfast treat you won’t be able to resist!
Coffee cake always reminds me of grandmothers and childhood.
Simple and moist, these cakes are generally layered with cinnamon and nuts, then topped with a crumbly crust. Casual, yet decadent.
Coffee cake is the perfect cake to nibble while sipping tea or coffee at grandma’s kitchen table, pouring out your adventures (or whoas) from the day.
This rustic utilitarian style treat provides unassuming comfort that feels like a warm hug.
Growing up, it seemed every church or neighborhood event would inspire someone to bring a coffee cake. Usually a sweet elderly lady.
I don’t think anyone would have ever refused, and they were always gone by the end of the event.
Nowadays I crave coffee cake when I’m feeling down, or need to get something off my chest. Just a taste makes me feel at ease, as if grandma were still around to listen to my problems.
Today’s variation is a simple sour cream coffee cake with a surprise element… Kahlua coffee liquor glaze.
I layered the cake batter in a pan, sprinkling a cinnamon-pecan mixture between each layer of batter. Then I mixed the last of the pecan mixture with a little butter and flour to make a crumb topping.
After the crumble is sprinkled over the top, the Kahlua Coffee Cake bakes into fluffy tender layers of goodness with a crusty surface.
As if that weren’t enough, a sweet Kahlua glaze is drizzled over the top to seep down into the cake, creating pockets of boozy coffee essence!
Kahlua Coffee Cake is a marvelous treat to serve as a naughty breakfast or brunch, as an after-school snack, or as a casual dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Or… serve this Kahlua Coffee Cake like grandma would have, with a cup of coffee (or cold milk) and a big hug.
