Bread Machine Pineapple Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

Pineapple Cheese Coffee Cake
A slightly sweet dough filled with a pineapple cream cheese mixture that tastes just like a cheesecake!
Yield 1 coffee cake




  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 (0.25oz) package (7g) or 2 1/4 teaspoons Red Star Active Dry Yeast


  • 1 (8.5oz) can crushed pineapple (drained, reserve juice)
  • 1 (8oz) package cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  • 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons pineapple juice (reserved)


  • Have all other ingredients at room temperature. Place ingredients in pan in the order recommended by manufacturer. Select dough/manual cycle. Do not use delay timer. Check dough consistency after 5 minutes of kneading. The dough should be in a soft, tacky ball. If it is dry and stiff, add water, 1/2 to 1 tablespoon at a time. If it is too wet and sticky, add 1 tablespoon of flour at a time. When cycle is finished, continue with next step.
  • Prepare pan: grease 9×13-inch cake pan; set aside.
  • Prepare filling: Cream all ingredients together; set aside.
  • Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; punch down to remove air bubbles. Divide dough into 2 unequal pieces (one is 1/3 of dough, and one is 2/3 of dough). Roll out larger piece on a floured surface to a 10×14-inch rectangle. Place in prepared pan; pressing dough up sides.
  • Spread filling evenly over dough.
  • Roll out remaining dough piece to a 5×12-inch strip. Cut into five 1×12-inch strips. Lay strips lengthwise over filling. Fold down sides of dough to hold strips in place. Cover; let rise until indentation remains after touching.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Prepare icing: In a small bowl, add pineapple juice to powdered sugar and stir together until smooth. If the icing is too thin, add more powdered sugar; too thick, add more pineapple juice.
  • After rising, bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Cool in pan. Drizzle with icing.
