Creamy Coffee Cake

    1 hour

    This coffee cake is so creamy you would think it is a cheesecake but I don't think it's quite under that category. Delicious filling and topping though!

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and flour a 25cm ring tin. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, icing sugar and lemon juice until smooth; set aside. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, bicarb soda and salt; set aside.
    2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and 1 cup white sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the sour cream, mixing just until incorporated. Pour half of batter into prepared ring tin. Spoon cream cheese mixture on top of batter to within 1cm of the edge. Spoon remaining batter over filling, spreading to the edge. In a small bowl, combine chopped nuts, 2 tablespoons white sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Sprinkle over batter.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a serving plate and serve warm.

    The first time I made this the filling was sour. So, I changed the filling to an 8oz. cream cheese, cut the lemon juice to a teaspoon and added 1/2 tsp vanilla. I have had many, many requests for this recipe.  -  24 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    this cake was heavenly... very nice texture, and the cream chees filling was great.. a couple of ideas.. double the amount of the filling, and add a little vanilla extract to it.. thanks for the recipe  -  05 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
