GIVEAWAY (yay!) + Tart Cherry Streusel Coffee Cake

GIVEAWAY CLOSED!!! First order of business, there’s a giveaway!!! I am so excited to partner with Oregon Fruit Products to give away a Nespresso VertuoPlus Coffee Maker + Espresso Machine + 12 beautiful fruity cans of Oregon Fruit Products, so you can make this gem year round!!! All you have to do is comment below on your favorite holiday breakfast, that’s it. You can enter more on my Oregon Fruit Instagram post going up tomorrow, December 16, 2018. Open to US addresses only; giveaway will close December 18, 2018 6AM PST. Good luck! xoxo

Now onto this recipe!! Who doesn’t love a coffee cake? They are probably one of my favorite breakfast treats. I was super excited to bring you this delicious (and easy) cherry streusel coffee cake that’s loaded with tart cherries, topped with a thick oat-almond streusel lid and a quick drizzle of glaze. She’s such a lovely and accommodating coffee cake she’ll even let you assemble her the night before, stash in the fridge and bake first thing in the morning making her (we’re still talking about the coffee cake) the perfect holiday breakfast treat for entertaining.

I’m super excited to partner with Oregon Fruit Products as they are one of my favorite canned fruits since childhood. They are what my mom used (and uses) for her cherry pies and now they go in my cherry pies. Oregon Fruit is packed in the summer at peak ripeness and is perfect for using during the winter months when fresh fruit isn’t as avail. When I was living in China, I used to bring cans of it from the US to have on hand for emergency Beijing pies…which were much needed. I hope you’re all having fun in the midst of holidaying and things aren’t too crazy. Promise me you’ll take a minute to relax and pause and breath and eat cake with friends. It’s good for the soul.

Before We Get Started:

  • Make Ahead. Nothing gives me greater joy than make-ahead everything. Especially if I’m entertaining and especially if it involves breakfast. Thomas Keller has a recipe in his Bouchon cookbook for cornbread muffins and he has you rest them in the fridge overnight prior to baking. They were such a revelation for me in my baking career and it was the start of me really using the cool fridge temps to my advantage. It won’t mess with your leavening, I promise. What you may lose in added leavening power, you gain in the batter moisture getting absorbed into the flour and making things nice and puffy. Trust me on this. You’ll assemble it up until the point of getting the batter into the greased pan, wrap it tightly and stash it in the fridge. Store your streusel in the fridge separately overnight.
  • Streusel. I love to give my streusel a nice chill prior to baking which is why we make it first. Don’t skip this.
  • Almonds. Some people are nut sensitive or just don’t like them…you’re fine to omit. But they look so pretty and I love the crunch if you’re on the fence.
  • Cake Flour. I wanted this cake to be really light. You can always sub 1 cup of flour (with 2 tablespoons of flour taken out of it) + 2 tablespoon of cornstarch for 1 cup of cake flour. So this cake would take 3 cups of all-purpose flour with 6 tablespoon of all-purpose flour removed and 6 tablespoons of cornstarch added in. But, cake flour is easy and at most stores so consider it…it’s great!!
  • Baking Vessel. If you go up or down in the pan size you will need to bake it more or less, so keep an eye on things if you get crazy with this.
  • Cherries. I used the Oregon Fruit Product Tart Cherries and instead of folding them into the batter, I sprinkled 3/4 of them over the top of the batter, sprinkled the streusel and then sprinkled the remaining 1/4 of cherries over the top. I like to give people an idea of what flavors they’re biting into. This also makes it so that every bite has a cherry in it. Yes…that’s what we’re looking for.

Let’s get our cherry streusel coffee cake on, shall we?

Tart Cherry Streusel Coffee Cake  

Makes 1 8×11 Coffee Cake  

For the Streusel

  • 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 2/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature and cut into 8 pieces
  • ¼ cup chopped almond slivers

For the Cake

  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 ½ cups of superfine sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 3 teaspoons real vanilla extract
  • 3 cups cake flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 cup whole milk, room temperature
  • 1 can Oregon Fruit Products Red Tart Cherries, drained

For the Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar (sifted if there are lumps)
  • 1 tablespoon or more of milk to thin

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F. Grease an 8×11 baking dish and line with parchment, letting the excess hang over the sides (you’ll use this to pull the cake out of the pan).
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and sea salt. Using a pastry blender or your hands, work the butter into the mixture until it resembles wet sand and when pinched together it holds into clumps. Gently mix in the almonds and place in the fridge. If storing overnight, cover with plastic wrap; otherwise it’s fine for an hour-ish.
  3. In an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or use a bowl and spoon) mix the butter and sugar on medium until light and fluffy or about 5-6 minutes. You want it pretty fluffy, so if your kitchen is chilly let the machine run longer. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl to make sure everything is the same consistency. Add in the eggs, one at a time, making sure the first is well blended before adding in the second. Add in the vanilla and run the machine for 1 minute more.
  4. In a medium bowl whisk together the cake flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt and then add half to the mixer and run the machine until it’s almost blended. Add in half of the milk and run the machine until almost blended. Repeat with the remaining flour mixture and milk.
  5. Scoop the mixture into the prepared pan smoothing the top a bit with the back of a spoon/spatula so that it’s even. Sprinkle with 3/4ths of the cherries, cover with the streusel (there’s a lot!) and then sprinkle with the remaining cherries.
  6. Bake in the center of the oven for 50 minutes. The center will be soft, maybe a slight jiggle, but set. The top and exterior should be nicely bronzed. Let cool on a cooling rack for 15 minutes and then use the parchment handles to remove it from the pan so that it can finish cooling out of the pan. If it resists coming out run a knife around the edge to help it along. Additionally, you can let it cool longer in the pan if you’re having a hard time getting it out. Don’t stress.
  7. While the cake cools, whisk up your powdered sugar and milk to make the drizzle. You want it pretty thick so the bright white shows up over the top and then drizzle it all Jackson Pollock like over the top. Cut and serve. And enjoy. Have a wonderful day!!

On My Mind

I wanted to share some fun press to listen, watch and read:

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend/week — I hope you find a wee minute to rest, chill, bake coffee cakes and relax. Heaps of love to you!

R xoxo

    Growing up France, my mom made sure we had croissants with our hot chocolate on Christmas morning so I do that for my kids now. It brings me back to happy childhood memories. A friend gives out cinnamon rolls when she is in town, so we sometimes also enjoy those, and another friend likes to bring us stolen if she makes it to Black Cat bakery in Montana. It’s all good!

    My sister and I wake up at lien 5 or 6 am and make spaghetti on Christmas. One year we woke up when we were teenagers with our stockings on our bed and we were craving spaghetti so badly we raced downstairs and made it before even opening stockings (very rare) and ate spaghetti while opening our stockings that year. And now we still wake up early and make it every Christmas morning, now we get to have our coffee afterwards together before anybody else’s Wakes up. So random but it’s now a tradition I treasure, it’s magical!!

    My absolute favorite is gingerbread overnight oats with a splash of cream. So yummy! My kids would tell you that theirs is the most decadent baked French toast casserole.

    I grew up on having biscuits with chocolate gravy for Christmas breakfast. It sounds been in the family for generations with my southern Granny.

    Oatmeal pancakes with walnut butter…delicious!
    This recipe was published in the Oregonian newspaper in Portland, Oregon, in 2003 and comes from the Morning Glory Restaurant in Ashland, Oregon.

    My moms coffee cake is the best breakfast. It’s one of the only things she can make (the woman burned spaghetti for goodness sake!) but it is mind blowing.

    Many, many years ago I discovered a recipe for Maple Nut Twist coffecake in one of those little Pillsbury Bake Off cookbooks that you find by the grocery store register. Ever since, this has been the one staple of Christmas morning breakfasts and I only make it at Christmas.

    My favorite is the spread we have Christmas morning. My dads side of the family has been hosting Christmas morning brunch for 52 years(!!!), and although it’s changed a bit over the years, there are some tried and trues….hashbrown casserole, frenchtoast bake, and sooooo many cookies including Moravian cookies – the thinnest, most delicate cookies ever. Can’t wait for this years feast!

    My favorite are homemade flour tortillas hot off the griddle, homemade salsa and refried beans and pepper jack cheese made/shredded the night before. One of 3 instances I was ever allowed to sit on the kitchen counter.

    I love sticky buns, cinnamon raisin toast, croissants, and baguette with butter and jam. But my all time favorite was the super thick caraway seed studded rye bread that my Polish grandma used to cram into the toaster then spread thickly with salted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Still one of my favorites, though you can’t get decent rye in the wilds of North Idaho.

    I’m all for make ahead special breakfasts! A Cheesy Sausage & Mushroom Egg Casserole that can be prepped the day before and put in the the oven in the morning along with a Coffee Cake made the day before and warmed up in the morning, and of course plenty of fresh hot coffee! Your Tart Cherry Coffee looks delicious and saved to my must make list!

    So hard to choose between iced cinnamon raisin buns and banana chocolate chip pancakes…I think I have to go with the cinnamon buns! Make a day in advance, proof overnight in the refrigerator and bake in the morning. .

    I love a nice coffee cake with my coffee, of course! Or a good egg casserole with potatoes and cheese. Also with coffee. Maybe both of those. Coffee cake is dessert for your breakfast.

    It depends on whether or not I’m making it. My absolute fav when someone else is cooking are crepes topped with fruit and whipped cream :) When I’m in charge of the kitchen, I make easier fare: gigantic cinnamon rolls, hash brown casserole, scrambled eggs and bacon!

    Our favorite breakfast casserole is sausage
    egg casserole. It stores well overnight ,then you pop it in the oven and add some cinnamon rolls, hot coffee and you have a feast.

    This cake looks amazing, and I am definitely adding it to my list of must-make holiday recipes. One of my favorite memories is of watching my mother make the lattice top for her cherry pies for every family gathering. It wasn’t always easy to find canned tart cherries back then, but there would have been an uprising without those pies!

    We like to make it easy and save room for dinner later. We usually have some nice warm croissants with butter and jam with plenty of coffee and tea. I like the idea of this coffee cake as a special treat for that morning.
