Overnight Crunch Coffee Cake

on November 13, 2013

We need some recipes for overnight company this time of year.

Overnight Crunch Coffee Cake is great to have when you need something quick for your guests visiting over the holidays.

You get the cake ready in the evening and bake it in the morning.

The dry ingredients and topping could even be mixed up a couple of days ahead of time.

So great.

I love that you can do this ahead and wont have to do much in the morning.

Every little bit that you don’t have to do helps!

And again – the “V Good” connotation!

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Overnight Crunch Coffee Cake

2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

2/3 cup butter

1 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 cup buttermilk

Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a bowl.

Cream butter and sugars until light.

Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Add dry ingredients alternating with buttermilk.

Beat well.

Spread batter in greased and floured 9″ x 13″ cake pan.

Mix for topping:

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup pecans or other nuts, chopped

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Mix well and sprinkle over top of batter.

Put in refrigerator 8 hours or overnight.

Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes.


Sprinkle topping on and put it in the refrigerator and forget it until morning.


Hot out of the oven the top is crusty and sugary!


Nice and easy for a busy time of year.
