February is moving at a fast pace and I am loving it!
It is currently very snowy here. We had our first really BIG snowstorm of the year. It dumped 15 inches. I love it and enjoy it. I am savoring it all even more because once I move from here who knows the next time I will get to play in the snow.
This year has certainly been much slower for me than last year. I am not as busy which means more time for baking and painting my nails!
Any plans for Valentines Day? Or are you just totally negative towards the whole thing,lol? I rather enjoy the day and try to always bake something special. So look for another post later this week!
My husband absolutely loved this cake, as did I. It is just delicious, very moist, cakey, just yum! My husband said it reminds him of a doughnut.
It is very quick and easy to put together. Perfect for any time of day too. You could also add raisins or nuts to the batter, I did not since I primarily bake for others.
- 1 Cup Unsalted Butter, room temperature
- 2 Cups Sugar
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1 Teaspoon Coffee Extract
- 4 Eggs
- 3 Cups All-Purpose Flour
- 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1 Teaspoon Salt
- 2 Cups (16 ounces) Greek Vanilla Yogurt
- ¾ Cup Brown Sugar
- 1 Tablespoon Ground Cinnamon
- ~Coffee Glaze~
- 1 Cup Confectioners Sugar
- 2 Tablespoons Strong Coffee
- Preheat oven to 350º. Coat a 10 cup fluted bundt or tube pan coated with vegetable or olive oil cooking spray.
- Combine flour, baking soda and salt set aside.
- In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla and coffee extracts.
- Add flour mixture alternately with the greek yogurt, beating just enough after each addition to keep batter smooth.
- Spoon a third of the batter into the bundt pan.
- Combine cinnamon and brown sugar; sprinkle a third over batter in pan. Repeat layers.
- Cook in oven for 60-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
- Leave in pan for 10-15 minutes before removing cake from pan and completely cooling on wire rack or cake stand.
- To make the glaze make sure to sift the confectioners sugar or you could end up with some lumps as I did,lol. Then add the coffee one tablespoon at a time, you may want to use more or less depending on the consistency you desire.
- When the cake is completely cooled, pour glaze over the cake and let stand for at least 10 minutes to "harden" before slicing cake.
