Cake for Breakfast: Our Best Coffee Cakes

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. 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. 

Carrot Coffee Cake

2. Carrot Coffee Cake

Buttermilk whipped cream complements our tropical spin on this Southern classic brimming with pecans, carrots, and crushed pineapple.

Raspberry-Buttermilk Coffee Cake

3. Raspberry-Buttermilk Coffee Cake

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.

4. Brown Butter Hummingbird Coffee Cake

This is your best excuse for having cake for breakfast. Browned butter adds depth to this unexpected twist on the classic Southern banana-pineapple confection. Pecan streusel is just, well, the icing on the coffee cake.
