Almond Filled Coffee Cake Recipe

One of my favorites any time of the year for baking is Spring for fresh baked goods and  then of course holiday foods for festive creations. This is a sweet dough with a delicious almond filling. You can use this dough with any of your favorite fillings and great anytime of the year. This one is a classic coffee cake made with yeast and a delicate dough worth all the efforts it takes

Almond Filled Coffee Cake Recipe

4 eggs yolks room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1 stick butter
1/1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoon vanilla
1 package yeast
2 teaspoons salt
4 3/4 cups flour and more for rolling
 1 or 2 cans almond filling depending how thick you like the filling
sliced almonds I use one can for both. We don't like excessive sugar or sweet fillings.
(recipe make 2 rings)

Heat the butter and milk to lukewarm. In a large mixer bowl using a flat beater, add the flour, yeast, salt to the bowl. Pour the lukewarm milk mixture slowly mixing in with the flour along with eggs and vanilla. Mix until is forms a sticky ball. Place on a floured board and knead for around 3 minutes with floured hands. Place into a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and a saucepan cover. Let rise 2 hours.

Roll out, spread with the filling and roll up like a jelly roll then form into a ring, you decide how much or sweet your like it (I used half a can on two of these).

Using a scissors or very sharp knife slice the ring every 2 inches making around 10 cuts. Take the cut part, twist so the filling is facing upward.

  Cover again with a towel for around 25 minutes. Bake on 375 preheated oven brushing with egg whites and slices of almonds. Bake until golden brown on top.

Note: you can use any kind of filling you want I also make this with raspberry filling.

  1. Oh my this recipe looks awesome! I love to make bread and I will try this one for sure!
    Thanks so much for sharing. I'm pinning it.
    Happy and blessed Easter.

  2. This would definitely be a favorite of mine. I have a similar recipe I like to make, but for some reason, I alway shave a hard time finding the filling. The Solo brand almond filling used to be everywhere, but now I can almost always only find almond paste. I think it's Chanatry's where I run into it on occasion now, so I grab a few.
