Buttery Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

This is a wonderfully decadent coffee cake. It melts in your mouth and makes you want more. It's definitely a recipe to make for special occasions, though, as it is loaded with butter and sugar (no wonder it tastes so good!). I made it for my mom and me for a breakfast treat today, and we could hardly keep ourselves from going back in the kitchen to eat the whole thing! The next time you need to make a special breakfast or brunch treat, or even for afternoon tea, give this recipe a try. You won't be sorry. :)


1 cup butter (no substitutes)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup sour cream
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 egg
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup butter (semi-soft)

Set oven to 350 degrees (oven rack set to second-lowest position). Grease a 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Cream butter with sugar (about 3-4 minutes), add in eggs and sour cream; beat well (about another 3 minutes). In a bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture; beat well until combined (batter will be thick). Spread more than half of the batter in the prepared baking pan. In another bowl, cream together all filling ingredients, then carefully spread over the cake batter. Spoon the remaining cake batter over the top of the cheese mixture (it doesn't have to cover the cake batter completely - I just dot tablespoonfuls over the batter using a small cookie scoop). For the topping, mix all ingredients with a pastry blender until crumbly, and sprinkle over cake. Bake for about 50 minutes or until middle feels set and not jiggly.
