Cake for Breakfast: Our Best Coffee Cakes

Food Styling and Recipe Development by Marian Cooper Cairns/Photography by Matt Armendariz

Derived from the traditional German kaffeekuchen (sweet breads or cakes served during the daily coffee break), these irresistible streusel-topped cakes are delicious anytime of day—no cup of java necessary. 

  1. Figgy Oat Coffee Cake

We updated the classic streusel coffee cake with fresh ripe figs and almonds. No need to distinguish between breakfast and dessert—it’s an eat-it-anytime-you-crave-it cake.

2. Caramel Pecan Banana Coffee Cake

In this delicious coffee cake, praline pecans meet Bananas Foster, a decadent dessert created at New Orleans’ Brennan’s Restaurant in 1951.

A layer of sweet raspberry jam ribbons through this tender buttermilk cake. Don’t be surprised if the scent draws a crowd before it’s even out of the oven.
