When I first spied this recipe, I couldn’t resist trying it right away. (I actually stirred it together that same day and baked it the next morning!) What’s not to love about an overnight cake?

You simply stir the ingredients together before bed and have an awesome breakfast treat ready to go when you wake up. This is going to be perfect for holiday mornings.

Easy Coffee Cake

This easy coffee cake is an Amish recipe that I found in the Tasteful Treasures cookbook. The authors are listed as “the Horse and Buggy Country of Conewango Valley, NY” – how fun is that?

It’s my understanding that many of the recipes in the book have been sold at a local bakery stand in Conewango County. All I know for sure is that the recipes I have tried so far have been a success.

Overnight Coffee Cake with Cinnamon Pecan Topping

Overnight Coffee Cake Recipe

  1. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside. Place the butter and both sugars in a separate mixing bowl and beat to combine. Add the eggs and beat well.
  2. Add half of the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and beat to combine. Slowly add the buttermilk while beating, and then add the remaining dry ingredients. Spread the mixture in a well-greased 9×13-inch pan.
  3. Combine the brown sugar, pecans, cinnamon, and nutmeg for the topping in a small bowl. Sprinkle on top of batter in the cake pan, taking care not to pile too much in the center.
  4. Cover the pan with a lid or with foil and refrigerate overnight.
  5. Bake in a pre-heated 350°F oven for 45-50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean or with moist crumbs.
