batterway coffeecake


Now that we’ve sprung forward, I like to think that the extra hour of daylight means spring is upon us. With the new season comes wedding showers and weekend brunches, creating the need for a good coffeecake. My solution is this no-knead batterway coffeecake from Red Star Yeast.

The dough comes together in less than 10 minutes, and two quick 20-minute rises lead to a lighter-than-air coffeecake. Perfumed with orange zest and topped with an orange-pecan streusel, this is a must for your brunch table.

A few notes:
• I used Red Star PLATINUM Yeast, which is my go-to yeast for all bread baking. Blend PLATINUM Yeast with dry ingredients and half of the flour in the recipe, and add very warm liquids (120-130°F). More on how to use PLATINUM here.
• My rise times with PLATINUM were 20 minutes per rise and my coffeecakes baked in 20 minutes at 375°F.
• This coffeecake can be baked in one 13 x 9-inch baking dish or two smaller pans; I opted for two 9-inch rounds.
• The recipe gives 3 topping options; I made the streusel topping with sugar, chopped pecans, flour, cinnamon, orange zest, and softened butter.

  1. The part of Australia that I live in doesn’t have daylight savings – at all. It sucks. So now that it’s Autumn here (we don’t even have fall!) I think I need one of these gorgeous coffee cakes just to accept that summer is over.

  2. Beautiful color to this coffee cake from that streusel and the texture looks so good! The perfect treat for sunday mornings with my coffee!!

  3. I just adore Red Star Yeast. In fact I was contemplating my next yeast bread just this morning. Your coffeecake looks amazing!!! Minus the nuts, it would be hubby approved…but I like it just as it is 🙂

  4. I am so ready for spring! Such a scrumptious recipe to begin a relaxing weekend. The fast and easy rising and baking times are such delight!

  5. the recipe calls for shortening. is it necessary to use something like crisco, or can i use butter? thanks!

  6. Just made this today, OMG wonderful. Not too sweet, perfect with coffee. My first time ever making a yeast coffee cake. Love this one and keeping it. I added some drizzled icing and a few extra pecan halves. Yummmo, try this one folks.

  7. Hi, I want to put chopped pecans in the batter too. Do you think it would impact the rise or baking?

    1. Hi Beth, it shouldn’t be a problem. I’d just mix in the pecans with the dry ingredients and go from there. Hope that helps!
