New York Style Coffee Cake

I’ve been hearing rumors that Starbucks has done a complete overhaul of their pastries and that, my friends, makes me sad. I love cupcakes and cake pops (lies) as much as the next person, but who wants that with coffee? Hey Starbucks, quit trying to keep up with the trends and stick with things that go with coffee – like uhh, coffee cake.


This coffee cake is a lot like one of my favorite Starbucks pastries, the New York Style Coffee Cake. Except I think Starbucks calls (called?) it crumb cake. Or I called it crumb cake. Once of us definitely called it crumb cake.

The cake is so soft thanks to the yogurt in the recipe. And by the way, I used honey flavored Greek yogurt in this and it turned out fantastic. If you have some in your fridge, use it for this cake! The crumb topping is unbelievable. I could have eaten the entire recipe of crumb topping by itself. If you’re into nuts, I think you could get away with tossing some finely chopped walnuts or pecans into the topping too.
