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.

    When a recipe says simply “brown sugar” I never know for sure whether the writer means dark brown or light brown sugar. Or if it makes a difference which one. Which one is best for this recipe?

    • Chung-Ah says

      Generally when a recipe lists “brown sugar”, it refers to light brown sugar. Recipes will specifically indicate the word “dark” when dark brown sugar when it is needed. That being said, light brown sugar is used in this recipe. Hope that helps!

    Can I make this the night before and add the crumb topping in the morning before baking? I want to make it and bring in to my sons teachers warm, but it seems like it will be too much to do before we leave for school.

  3. jill says

    i want to make this right now but i don’t have yogurt or sour cream. you think i could leave it out? what would i use instead? i don’t have pumpkin either.

    • Chung-Ah says

      Jill, I do not recommend leaving it out as this ingredient is crucial to the recipe. There really is no appropriate substitute – I highly recommend using the specific ingredients listed in the recipe for optimal results.

    Hi Chung! Can you use regular butter instead of the unsalted butter? I’m new on your site and I just love your recipes and picture!!

  5. Delores Bruyette says

    Im in love with these recipes. I didn’t see where there was pumpkin listed in this one. Did I miss something. I will gain A LOT OF WEIGHT if I eat them all .

  6. Delores Bruyette says

    I have a ton of flavored ground granola and it tastes like brown sugar do you think I could use it instead of the brown sugar. It was granola cereal but we cant eat it to well so I ground it all up.

    This coffee cake is simply AMAZING! I stumbled upon your page after finding and making your Crumbly Pumpkin Bread (which is also scrumptious….you can’t go wrong with a crumb topping!). I absolutely love your page, thank you for sharing all of these wonderful recipes! :)
