Do you have special plans for Mother's Day? I know I'll be gathered around the dining room table with my family, and I hope that you'll feel extra treasured this Sunday too!
Here's a perfect Coffee Cake recipe to make the Mom in your life feel extra special this Mother's Day.
I love this Coffee Cake because it's easy to put together and it tastes amazing, but it looks like it took forever. Also, I'm always running around like a chicken with my head cut off with these four little boys we have, so this is a great make-ahead-the-night-before-and-still-tastes-amazing-in-the-morning recipe :) I make it for birthdays, Christmas morning, and other special occasions.
But Moms, hand this recipe to your husband and/or kids and let them do the baking for you this time!
Mother's Day Brunch Coffee Cake
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temp
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3 large eggs, room temp
1 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups vanilla yogurt
2 1/4 cups flour, sifted
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup flour
4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. I like to bake it in a bundt pan. Cream butter and sugar in stand mixer until light and fluffy, about 4-5 minutes. Add in eggs one at a time until well blended. Mix in yogurt & vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients- sifted flour, baking power, baking soda, and salt. Fold dry ingredients into wet ingredients and mix until well combined. Sprinkle half of the crumble in the BOTTOM of prepared pan. Gently pour half of the batter on top of crumble layer. Sprinkle the other half of the crumble topping on top of batter, then gently pour in the remaining batter. Bake for 50 minutes or until lightly brown and a toothpick comes out almost clean (a little batter on it is good in my opinion, so it won't be dry). Cool completely on cooling rack. Gently run a knife around the edges, then carefully invert onto a cake stand or pretty plate. Enjoy!!
Happy Mother's Day! I hope all of you Moms have a wonderful day treasuring those that you hold close to your heart. Sometimes life gets crazy, busy, and stressed and in those moments it's hard for me to remember how blessed I truly am. But I am so, so grateful that I have the pleasure of being called Mom/Mommy/Mama by four precious little boys who light up my world every single day. Every Mother's Day my heart aches for friends who are hurting on this day- friends who have tried so hard to have babies, friends who have babies in heaven, and friends whose babies are sick. I'll be saying a special prayer for those friends on Mother's Day. xoxo
