Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

We are listening to the thunder and the rain which comes down in torrents, when it does come down.  So far, so good and we are optimistic.


To prove to you I am cool, I have just baked two cakes, on a cream cheese coffee cake and the other a Mango Nut Yogurt Cake.  Made them both gluten-free for hubby but I will be sharing this.  They are still baking and if possible, I will get a photo up, tonight. In the meanwhile, here is the recipe for the Cream Cheese Coffee Cake.  I plan to put the Mango cake on My Sweet and Savory.




 Cream Cheese Coffee Cake


 Ingredients:


1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (gluten-free brown rice blend)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sour cream

  • FILLING:
  • 2 (3 ounce) packages cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • CINNAMON-NUT TOPPING:
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Method:

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with sour cream. Set batter aside.

In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and lemon juice until smooth. Spoon half of the batter into a greased and floured 10-in. tube pan. Top with filling and remaining batter. Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over batter.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to wire rack.
