I partnered with H-E-B this fall to create some fun, festive holiday recipes, and I have to say this my favorite! This Wreath Coffee Cake is both easy to make, and looks so lovely on your holiday table.
To keep things simple, we used our traditional coffee cake recipe. To create the wreath shape, we simply spread the batter into H-E-B’s new nonstick Springform Bundform pan. And viola! Wreath Coffee Cake! We set a bow on the cake for decoration, and added berries on the side for a pop of color.
The recipe is super simple to throw together (my kids love helping with this one!) and bakes up in just 30 minutes. You probably have the ingredients in your kitchen, so it’s a wonderful recipe to keep around for last-minute holidays, gifts or celebrations.
You’ll just need one bowl and a spatula to whip it together. I use a mini food processor for the crumble topping, but you could use a fork or your fingers to mix the butter with the flour, sugar and cinnamon, if you prefer.
And, OMG, the smell of this coffee cake baking is heaven! With wafts of cinnamon, butter, almond and vanilla coming from the oven, it takes some serious self-control to let it cool before sneaking a slice!
For a gluten-free option, simply substitute a gluten-free flour mix for the all-purpose flour, cup for cup.
