Coffee-Streusel Bundt Cake


From EatingWell:  March/April 2011

Can you really have too much of a good thing when it comes to the combination of coffee and cake? Here, we’ve created a lighter but still moist and rich Bundt cake, added a ribbon of hazelnut-coffee streusel inside and a drizzle of coffee glaze on top. To say it tastes great with a good cup of coffee is an understatement. Recipe by Joyce Hendley for EatingWell.

16 servings | Active Time: 35 minutes | Total Time: 3 1/2 hours (including 2 hours cooling time)


Streusel Filling




  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 10-cup Bundt pan or tube pan with cooking spray.
  2. To prepare streusel: Combine 3 tablespoons each all-purpose flour, brown sugar and hazelnuts, 2 tablespoons espresso powder and melted butter in a small bowl.
  3. To prepare cake: Whisk white-whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl. Stir together sour cream (or yogurt) and vanilla in a small bowl.
  4. Beat butter, oil and granulated sugar in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until well combined. Add eggs and egg whites, beating after each addition until just incorporated. Add the dry ingredients alternately with the sour cream (or yogurt) mixture, starting and ending with the dry ingredients and beating on low speed just until incorporated after each addition, scraping down the sides as necessary.
  5. Spoon half the batter into the prepared pan and sprinkle evenly with the reserved streusel. Top with the remaining batter and smooth the top.
  6. Bake the cake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 50 minutes to 1 hour. Cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. To prepare glaze: Place confectioners’ sugar in a small bowl. Add 1 tablespoon espresso mixture (or coffee) and stir until smooth. Add up to 1 tablespoon more of the liquid to thin the glaze to desired consistency. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled cake. Garnish with chopped hazelnuts, if desired.
