Indulge in this heavenly Buttermilk Coffee Cake that perfectly blends a tender, moist texture with a crunchy, nutty topping for a delightful start to your day. It's an ideal treat for those cozy, lazy mornings or a sophisticated addition to your brunch table.


Step 1: Prepare Your Ingredients

Begin your buttermilk coffee cake adventure by preheating your oven to 350F. Take a 13x9x2-inch baking pan and generously grease the bottom; this ensures your cake will release easily once baked. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together 3 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 cup of granulated sugar, and 1 teaspoon of salt. This will form the base of your cake and crumb topping.
Pro Tip: For an even mix, sift your flour and sugar before combining.

Step 2: Blend in Butter and Mix Dry Ingredients

Cut 3/4 cup of butter into the dry ingredients you've prepared until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Save 1/2 cup of this crumb mixture on the side for later; this will become your delicious crumbly topping. Into the larger portion of the crumb mixture, stir in 1 1/2 teaspoons each of baking powder and baking soda, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg. These spices add a warm, comforting aroma to your cake.
Pro Tip: Keep the butter cold for a flakier topping.

Step 3: Combine Wet Ingredients

In a medium bowl, whisk together 2 large eggs and 1 cup of buttermilk. This mixture will ensure your coffee cake is wonderfully moist and tender. The acidity from the buttermilk not only adds flavor but also works with the baking soda to create a delightful texture in your cake.
Pro Tip: Break eggs into a separate bowl first to avoid any shell accidents.

Step 4: Mix and Bake

Gently fold the egg and buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture. Stir just until the batter is moistened, being careful not to overmix. Pour the batter into your greased baking pan, spreading evenly. Take the reserved crumb mixture and sprinkle it over the batter along with 1/2 cup of chopped mixed nuts. This will add a delightful crunch to your coffee cake. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Let it cool slightly and serve warm for the best experience.
Pro Tip: Sprinkle the nuts evenly for a consistent crunch in every bite.
