Hello, Sugar Bee readers! My name is Sarah, and I blog at Bombshell Bling. I am so excited to be here today sharing my formerly secret Coffee Cake recipe!
I got this recipe from a friend in college and then decided that it was “my” secret recipe. Okayyyyy . . . kindof weird. HOWEVER, I perfected making it and my family and friends always knew that they could expect me on their doorstep at the crack of dawn on their birthday with this coffee cake in hand, despite me not being a morning person AT ALL. But how does that work?! Well, my friends, it’s an overnight coffee cake. You can make it and bake it immediately or you can make it and shove it in the fridge overnight. That way on the morning of a birthday or special event or holiday you can sleep a bit longer and just pop it in the oven for a special breakfast treat! YUM! It is perfect for serving on a busy Christmas morning! It is best served piping hot with milk. Mmmm…….
Now, without further ado, here is my “secret” coffee cake recipe. ENJOY!
Overnight Coffee Cake
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup buttermilk
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup powdered sugar
6 – 8 teaspoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1. Cream shortening and sugar.
2. Add eggs and mix.
3. Add buttermilk and mix.
4. Add dry ingredients and mix.
5. Grease a 9×13 pan and pour in batter (it will be thick).
6. Mix together topping and spread evenly over coffee cake.
7. OPTIONAL: Refridgerate overnight. (Perfect for birthdays and holiday mornings!)
8. Bake for 25 – 30 minutes at 350 degrees until a toothpick comes out clean.
9. Make the glaze and pour it over the hot coffee cake.

Looks delicious! We love coffee cake, and it would be a bonus to be able to put it together the night before!

If I want to refrigerate overnight do I go ahead and bake it and then refrigerate it or do I mix the ingredients and then bake it in the morning?
