Coffee Streusel Bundt Cake

5 reviews / 4.4 average

I knew there was a reason I made a salad this week. I must have known that this luscious dessert breakfast was coming.

This cake actually brings me back to the days of walking down the aisles at Target, armed with a registry scanner, and just knowing that someday I would need a bundt pan. Never mind that it’s been collecting dust for... a while. My overzealous registering back then came in handy today.

(Actually, speaking of wedding registries and kitchen gifts, there are many kitchen tools now that I use and think, “Aw, remember, so-and-so gave that to us! That was so nice!” Sadly, I don’t have that vivid memory with the bundt pan, but I would like to extend a big thanks to whoever gave that to us! And to anyone who gave us a wedding gift! And to anyone who came to our wedding!

Wow, how did I get this far gone?!)

So getting back to the bundt. Really, the process of making this streusel bundt cake wasn’t hard at all. After creaming everything together...

and drizzling it with frosting and chocolate chips...

and cutting a slice...

the hardest part was not eating three slices. Which is why I did eat three slices. (I had a salad this week, remember?)

If you’re married, do you have memories of who gave you certain gifts? Or items that you registered for and never used? Or things you wished you would have registered for?

      I can’t remember what mine is and I don’t have it here in the Philippines with me! Sorry Joanna! Do you have both? I’d use the 12 cup if you have both available. 🙂

    What do you have drizzeled ontop of the glaze? Also, do you use instant coffee and brew that?

      Hi, Eliana! On top of the glaze, Lindsay sprinkled cinnamon chips. That’s a completely optional step. As for the coffee, we used regular brewed coffee. In a pinch, I’m sure you could substitute brewed instant coffee with no problem. 🙂

    Hi Lindsay, A humble thanks from me to you for this great recipe. Because by using this recipe I give a surprise birthday gift to my friend’s party and got lots of accolade from my friends.
    But I know the real credit goes to you.

      Hi Amy! We haven’t tested this recipe using gluten free flour. I imagine a 1:1 gluten free flour would work. Let us know if you give it a try!

    Wow! Looks simple enough a new baker like myself may not mess it up! I might just have to surprise my husband with your coffee cake next weekend!

    Not sure what I did wrong, but the cake came out tough. I tried not to overmix the batter. Any suggestions as other than the toughness, I like this cake.

        Thank you, Krista! I think I overmixed. Still a delicious cake and will try it again as my husband loves it too.

    I made this cake last night and added a little more sugar as I felt it was a bit bland. My icing was solid and not at all a glaze, so I added a bit more liquid. I was sure to not overmix the batter after incorporating the dry mixture. This cake tasted great and I will certainly be trying it again.
