Recipe: Amish Coffee Cake

On Monday our Facebook fans were asked to vote for the recipe they’d prefer out of three options. With the busyness of early autumn and the need for a good start to the day, the theme for this month’s recipe choices was breakfast:

  1. Amish Coffee Cake
  2. Apple Oatmeal
  3. Stovetop Breakfast Casserole

Determining a winner was much more difficult this time, as there seemed to be nearly an even split between those who wanted coffee cake and those who wanted casserole. So we’re giving both recipes to you!

Below is the recipe for Amish Coffee Cake. The recipe for Stovetop Breakfast Casserole can be found on our Facebook page. Both are taken from The Homestyle Amish Kitchen Cookbook by Georgia Varozza.

    I agree, Shirley. Hope you enjoy the result if you give the recipe a try!


  2. I made this cake for our Sunday coffee hour at church. It was so easy and I had all the ingredients in the house. I made a double batch and served half to my family the night before and everyone loved it! Just be sure to let people know that there really is coffee in this coffee cake as some people can’t have coffee (like my pastor who ate a little without knowing). Will make this again but maybe will swap out coffee and use applesauce.

    That’s wonderful, Marie! I’m so glad you found it easy to make – and enjoyable to eat.

    As you note, not all “coffee cake” actually has coffee in it, so that’s a good idea to let people know before serving it, or to maybe substitute a different ingredient. The applesauce idea sounds tasty! You’ll have to let us know how it turns out if you try it sometime.
