Easy Homemade Toffee Streusel Coffee Cake

Everyone needs a good coffee cake recipe, and this Toffee Streusel Coffee Cake is my new go-to coffee cake recipe! OMG! It was incredibly delicious! We LOVED the chocolate toffee bits that were sprinkled all over the top of the cake. This cake is perfect for breakfast, afternoon snack, or even dessert. Warm-up a slice with some vanilla ice cream on top – heaven!

How to Make Coffee Cake from Scratch

This cake is very easy to make. Start with making the streusel mixture with cold butter, flour, brown sugar, sugar, and salt. Take a 1/2 cup of the mixture and set it aside for the top of the cake. Add baking soda, egg, vanilla, and buttermilk into the remaining butter mixture. Stir just until combined and pour into a cake pan. Sprinkle with the reserved topping and bake.

  • If you don’t have any buttermilk on hand, you can make your own with 1 cup of milk and either a tablespoon of lemon juice or a tablespoon of white vinegar. Just combine the two ingredients and let it sit for 5 or 10 minutes. Boom! Buttermilk!
  • The cake will keep about 1 week covered in the refrigerator.
  • Can I freeze Toffee Streusel Coffee Cake? Yes! You can freeze the baked cake. Cool the baked cake completely and wrap the cake in plastic wrap and aluminum foil.
  • You can also cut the cake into slices and wrap the slices in plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag and freeze for later.
