Wow, New Year’s Eve is tomorrow. Tomorrow, guys.

Do you all have fun plans? Jason and I are spending it with family and we plan to make lobster for the very first time. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to withstand the whining though – that’s why Jason will have to take care of the cooking that night.

Either way, I can’t wait to devour that fresh, buttery lobster meat.

And this coffee cake of course.

This coffee cake is from Emeril Lagasse, which is part of this week’s #SundaySupper installment of our kicked-up New Year’s potluck featuring his recipes.

I figured this would be the perfect New Year’s Eve food – mainly because you can start off the new year right, devouring the leftovers with your morning cup of coffee.

Oh and those giant crumbs you see there? Yeah, those are a must. I could just eat these starting with the crumbs first.

How else would you eat it?

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • For the crumb topping
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • For the brown sugar glaze
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick spray.
  • To make the crumb topping, combine sugars, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk in melted butter. Add flour and stir using a rubber spatula just until moist. Spread out mixture on parchment paper to dry until ready to use.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter and sugar on medium-high until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until well combined. Beat in vanilla until well combined.
  • With the mixer on low speed, add Greek yogurt and dry ingredients alternately in 3 parts, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients, beating just until incorporated.
  • Scoop the batter evenly into prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with reserved topping, using your fingertips to gently press the crumbs into the batter.
  • Place into oven and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • To make the glaze, combine brown sugar, vanilla and 2 tablespoons water. Whisk until smooth.
  • When the cake is done, cool for 10 minutes and drizzle the glaze evenly over the top.
  • Serve warm.
