Morning Cakes that Go With Coffee
Hi. I'm visiting a friend's summer house this weekend, and would like to bake a simple cake that we can eat with breakfast. Since the fruit is so great right now, I'm thinking something with berries, or maybe yogurt or sour cream? I'm open to more traditional coffee cakes too, as long as they're not too complicated. Any recipe suggestions appreciated!
Here's one I found adapted from Ina Garten. Any others?
OMG that looks delicious! I was going to suggest lemon and blueberries, too. Even if it were just a lemon quick bread with lemon syrup soak and a quick blueberry jam (no pectin, just cooked blueberries, a little sugar, lemon zest). Maybe a jar of lemon curd to gild the lily since it is sort of a hostess gift.
There's a raspberry buttermilk cake on smittenkitchen that's really delicious. I've made with soured milk instead of buttermilk. Very light, simple to prepare, and the recipe doubles and triples easily.
I also make a version of Alton Brown's blueberry buckle that's awesome. It's a one bowl recipe, and everyone loves it.
I don't know if this is the same cake, but the June issue of Gourmet Magazine had a simple and very yummy Raspberry Buttermilk cake. The recipe is on epi or here:
This Apple-Raspberry Cake from Bon Appetit is also very good.
If you can get any rhubarb, the NYT's Rhubarb Big Crumb Coffeecake is amazing.
Emeril has a good Apple Coffee Cake with Crumble Topping made with yogurt (or sour cream):
For a basic cinnamon coffee cake, I also like this really easy and reliable recipe:

I also have a couple of very good berry yogurt muffin recipes if you'd like them.
