Christmas Morning Coffee Cake

Share It:

Why the name? Make the batter, prepare it, then throw it in the oven while everyone opens Christmas presents. Great for family occasions or for a college student still learning their way around the oven -- whip up some mimosas and invite your friends over for brunch! They'll think you spent hours slaving away in the kitchen.


  • 3C flour (I usually use 1C whole wheat and 2C regular)
  • 1C granulated sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1C canola oil
  • 1 stick melted butter or margarine (1/2 C)
  • 1C milk
  • 2 TSP vanilla extract
  • 3 TSP baking powder
  • 1.5C brown sugar
  • 2 TSP cinnamon
  • 2 TSP nutmeg


Preheat oven to 350. Combine eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla in a large bowl. Set aside and mix flour, granulated sugar, a pinch of salt, and baking powder in medium bowl.  Gradually pour dry ingredients in with wet, mixing as you go. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon/nutmeg in a small bowl (add whatever spices you like, and feel free to experiment with the amounts! I just like the combo of cinnamon and nutmeg :) ). Pour half of the batter into a greased pan (it doesn't really matter what size, but I usually use a glass, 9x13 in.). Sprinkle half of the brown sugar mixture over this, then add the second half of the batter. Sprinkle the remaining brown sugar mixture over the top and drizzle with melted butter. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a knife comes out smooth.
