Easter Coffee Cake Ideas

Good morning! Can you believe it is almost Spring? I am finding it hard to believe quite honestly; in one day the weather dropped 35 degrees here, the sunny skies turned grey and ugly and it has been raining non-stop.

As I mentioned yesterday I have been searching for some breakfast ideas for the upcoming holidays. Eggs and bacon and those sorts of things are easy but I wanted something that I could make ahead and have for people who do not like typical breakfast food.

As I often do I turned to Pinterest, and it did not disappoint.

I have found everything from traditional cinnamon struesel coffee cake, to cream cheese to fruit filled.

Today in fact I will be trying out a couple of these recipes so I will let you know how they are, just in case you are home for the holidays and are looking for something to try.

Are you a coffee cake fan? Do you prefer fruit filled, struesel topped or something else? Typically I go for traditional cinnamon struesel, but I am open to trying something new like perhaps the chocolate chip coffee cake below.

I am also going to explore a few of the suggestions that you emailed to me, thank you!

I hope you have a fabulous day!


  1. Out of all of them, I like the look of your two cakes best! I wish I had a real oven. As we are limited for space on board we only have a micro/convection combo. Not good for baking cakes I'm afraid. It's a shame, I am such a cake lover and you have some wonderful recipes on your two blogs.

    Hope you are having a good week my friend!

  2. This is not a diet friendly post:) But I came over to "indulge" without really having to eat one of my favorite weaknesses....lol. It was worth it!

  3. Good morning, Elizabeth! What a beautiful array of coffee cakes! I would like to thank you for featuring my Cranberry Almond Coffee Cake! Have a beautiful day, and a Happy Easter! xox

  4. How absolutely GORGEOUS TODAY, my dear! That first image is so refreshing, what I enjoy most about any sweet. LOVE TO YOU! Anita

  5. You are killing me, Elizabeth!! Every single picture looks so delicious! I read this post just as I woke up this morning and all I wanted to do was run downstairs and bake coffee cake (or to a bakery to buy some). Luckily, I smartened up and yogurt and berries instead! Any of these would be perfect for Easter, although the one that looked best to me was your Cinnamon Cream Cheese cake.

    Have a great day!! xoxox

  6. What a scrumptious list! Thanks for sharing, I've bookmarked a few to try too!

  7. Oh Elizabeth....yes, yes and yes....may I please show up for Easter brunch. Of course this is the week I promised myself I would start being more mindful of what I eat. It all looks delicious. Enjoy your week. Bonnie

  8. My mouth is watering!!! :)))
