Now you can have your cake and eat your cheesecake too!

The thing about coffee cake is that… well, it’s COFFEE cake and coffee is for breakfast so technically I think this cake is an acceptable breakfast right?! Are you with me on this?

I’ve used Cherry Pie filling in this cake you can certainly substitute it with your favorite pie filling like blueberry or peach.

This dessert makes for a VERY full baking pan.  You’ll be fine if you’re using a 9″ round springform pan however if you are using a 9×9 square pan, you’ll want to make sure the edges are at least 2″ high to avoid leaking over the sides as this bakes.  I lined my 9×9 pan with a large piece of parchment paper leaving some overhang on each side.  This makes the cake easy to remove from the pan and cut but also helps eliminate drips.  Do not use a smaller pan than a 9×9 or it will overflow.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom & sides of a 9" springform pan or Line a 9x9 pan (must be at least 2" deep) with parchment paper.
  2. Combine flour, sugar & lemon zest in a large bowl. Cut in butter until crumbly. Remove 2/3 cup of this mixture and set aside.
  3. Add baking soda, baking powder and salt to the remaining crumb mixture. Mix in egg, sour cream or yogurt and vanilla. Press into prepared pan.
Filling
  1. Combine softened cream cheese, egg, lemon juice and sugar until well mixed. Pour over crust. Top with cherry pie filling. Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture over top.

Recipe Notes

Note: If using a 9x9 pan, the pan will be very full so you'll want to make sure your pan is at least 2" high. I leave my parchment paper overhanging on the edges.
