I enjoy cooking a large breakfast on the weekends, especially on Sunday. We usually eat a late morning brunch, and then skip lunch and have an early dinner. It makes my day a little easier.
Last weekend, after returning home from a minor league baseball game, I put this Coffee Cake together. It was really good, in fact, we snacked on it all day.
If you have been following along this week, you know that I shared a week of Make-Ahead Meals, the plan, the grocery list and the recipes. On Saturday evening I will post our Prep Day plan and then on Monday we will be cooking together, preparing a week’s worth of meals for the frig and freezer.
I’m really looking forward to this. It’s taken a little more time to prepare this week, but I know it will be so nice next week when I have all my meals prepared ahead of time. I hope you will join me! I will keep you updated on Twitter too, so if you aren’t following me, please jump over and click the follow button. I will use hashtag (#) Make-Ahead Meals.
So, I suppose you would like the recipe for this yummy Make Ahead Coffee Cake? Well, you are in luck
Note: Because it was 10 p.m. when I put this together, I didn’t make the streusel until the morning, after the cake was removed from refrigerator. I also didn’t add the nuts, it was delicious without, but I think it would taste really good with also. I served it with breakfast tacos and smoothies.
I also think it would be good to either swirl the streusel into the cake before baking or layer it. You would need to hold back part of the batter in a container in the frig, then when you are ready to bake it, pull it out, sprinkle with part of the streusel, pour remaining batter, then sprinkle remaining streusel.
Update! I baked this again for Mother’s Day and layered the streusel
Do you cook a big breakfast on the weekend? What do you cook?
