Almond Streusel Coffee Cake
A delicious coffee cake with the streusel topping reveled throughout.
Yield: One 13x9-inch coffee cake
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 4½ tsp (2 packages) RED STAR Active Dry Yeast
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup water
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ cup butter or margarine
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup chopped slivered almonds
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ cup butter or margarine, melted
  1. In large mixer bowl, combine 1½ cups flour, yeast, sugar and salt; mix well. In saucepan or microwave-safe dish, heat water, milk and butter to 120-130°F (butter does not need to melt). Add to flour mixture. Add eggs. Blend at low speed until moistened; beat 3 minutes at medium speed. By hand, gradually stir in remaining flour to make a stiff batter. Spread in a greased 13x9-inch pan.

  2. Prepare Topping: Combine all ingredients; mix well. Sprinkle topping over batter. With back of a spoon, make random indentations in dough. Cover; let rise in warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 375°F for 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown. Serve warm or cold.

You can substitute Instant (fast-rising) in place of Active Dry Yeast in batter/no knead recipes. When using Instant Yeast, expect your batter/dough to rise faster - about 50% faster. Adjust your rise times accordingly. Traditional methods: use equal amounts; Bread Machine: use ½ tsp Instant Yeast OR ¾ tsp Active Dry Yeast per cup of flour in your recipe.

  3. I made this yesterday and it was good, but bland. I added more sugar and cinnamon after tasting the blandness and that helped some. I think it needs drizzled butter or frosting…something moistening…and it would add more depth to the flavor. It is just missing something.

  4. I made this recipe yesterday and it turned out simply awesome. Thank you Red Star. 🙂
