This Cream Cheese Coffee Cake is another super easy and incredibly delicious cake recipe (“super easy” and “incredibly delicious” is the perfect cake combo if you ask me).

OK – let’s get this straight from the outset. One thing that this cake doesn’t have in it is any coffee. It’s a “coffee” style of cake, in that it goes very well with a cup of coffee. That’s right – there’s no coffee here.

So, now that we understand each other…

My absolute favorite part of this coffee cake is the swirl of sweetened tangy cream cheese in the middle.

It’s a little like a layer of cheesecake running through the center – but much easier to make.

And what’s a coffee cake without a crumbly streusel topping? Here a simple sugar, flour and butter streusel topping gives a lovely texture contrast. Add a sweet milky glaze to finish and this is a coffee cake that’s guaranteed to please.

Although there are four parts to this recipe (the filling, the cake, the streusel, the glaze) it’s all very, very, easy. Why wouldn’t you make it?

The very talented Kim at Just Baked By Me shares this wonderful recipe.

We have a few other coffee style cake recipes if you’re interested – this almond version is pretty amazing or for something fruity, try this peaches and cream combo.
