I love baking, but most of all I love creating new recipes of my own. My family are my "Taste Testers" and love this coffee cake especially for the holidays.

We just love this light and tasty coffee cake. The extended mixing time may be a bit of work, but the result is worth every minute! The Test Kitchen

How to Make Arlene's Caramel & Streusel Coffee Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350. (I use the convection setting which takes off about 10 minutes baking time).
    Spray a 9x13-glass(must be glass) baking pan with cooking spray.
    Add first 5 ingredients to mixer in order given. Beat exactly 8 minutes at medium speed.
    Add butter and vanilla extract.

    Pour the batter into oiled pan. Sprinkle the streusel mix over top. Take a knife (I use a chop stick…it works great) and swirl the streusel throughout making sure to go only about 1" deep into the batter by making "S" swirls, and then drizzle the caramel topping over this.
  • 2Bake @350 on middle rack for 40–45 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
    After removing from oven, let sit on wire rack for a few minutes.
  • 3For the glaze
    Warm the milk/cream. Whip cream cheese, adding milk/cream, butter/butter extract and powdered sugar, mixing well to blend.
    Add vanilla and stir until smooth and creamy.
  • 4While cake is still quite warm, drizzle with Glaze, then cool completely on rack
