Almond Filled Coffee Cake has that sweet almond filling that is addicting.


This is a pastry that looks and taste like it came from a bakery.


I couldn't believe I made it myself it's so darn pretty!


One of my favorites any time of the year to make this is around any Holiday.


It's really special. The time spent making this beauty is well worth it.


Delicious, soft dough with an almond filling is perfect for entertaining and impressing guests.


This almond filled coffee cake is a delicious addition to that cup of coffee in the morning and a treat for sure!

Every Year Tradition



As this Thanksgiving weekend draws to a close, I am so grateful for the chance to slow down and enjoy being with family and friends.


Don’t give me wrong, I absolutely love family get-togethers and Thanksgiving dinner, even if I do go overboard with baking for the holiday season.


But the days after Thanksgiving were also a real joy, baking cookies, cooler weather and the smell of sweetbreads baking!


Might I suggest this yeasted almond coffee cake?


It’s perfect for slicing up with coffee, lighter than those heavier laced desserts, and the perfect ending for something a little less on the sweet side.


It's sweet, soft and has a delicious filling with almonds and the perfect treat after a large meal or even breakfast.

Holiday Favorite Coffee Cake




During the holiday season, I like to make festive creations like this almond filled coffee cake.


I use red and green candied cherries, drizzled with a little thin set frosting and sliced almonds. I try to make them look like a holly wreath for Christmas.


Today since I am thinking back when mom made this in the cooler months, I wanted to have a slice, reminiscing about the old days.


She just loved to create delicious yeast-risen coffee cakes like this one.

A creative bread filled!



I love to see how this transforms. I was a little worried on how to design it but after a few attempts of twisting it correctly, it came out like the bakery would do.


It is a little time consuming but truly a work of art how it cooks after it's cut and twisted. Then it pulls apart so easy.


Everyone thinks I am a baking genius when I serve this twisted open filled ring.


It really is pretty awesome looking.


Such a great feeling of baking accomplishment.


It's always nice to be complimented on something so easy to make that looks so complicated and not at all.

The Filling



My one tip is, not to overfill the dough, spread it thin. The first time I made it, I didn't know what to do with the extra filling and opened two cans. So I slathered it in there. That was a gooey mess.



I didn't really appreciate the bread part because it was overfilled with this almond filling and overpowering.



Just a little goes a long way in flavor. If you really love the sugary sweet than use more. It's really a preference of taste.



When mom would make the pecan one, that I loved the most, she would first brush the dough with butter, then spread it with jam and nuts.

Apricot-Filled




Then would add apricot jam in a bowl with the pecans and heat till spreadable only a minute.



Spread that on the dough and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Proceed the same way.



I was the almond lover in the house. You could do the same with any kind of nuts.

For A Raspberry Filled Cake



My dad's favorite was raspberry, when he was alive I always made his favorite.


Spread the dough just like mom made for the apricot filled with butter on the dough then the I added the raspberry seedless jam instead. Brush the top with eggs whites and add the almonds sliced on top.


If you have another idea in mind please do share in the comments would love to know how you would fill yours or have filled yours with!

Sweet Dough



Mom was a pro at it, she made it often. Dad like a raspberry filling and she actually loved her pecan and cinnamon sugar filling, much like a cookie filling or used for cinnamon rolls with pecans.


I happen to love almonds. This is a sweet dough with a delicious almond filling.


You can use this dough with any of your favorite fillings and great any time 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 is a fun easy creative cake to make everyone loves.

Other Suggestions



This Almond Filled Coffee Cake is a yeast-risen bread, sweet and a favorite around the holiday.


These kind of rings of bread are special and make a great homemade gift for someone.


We love the lighter risen kinds of bread for breakfast and have many filling ideas we have tried.


The flavors can change just by using different flavored jams in the filling, they all work well.

This is a yeast-risen coffee Almond cake. It is a filled cake and delicious with coffee or tea any time of the day.

ingredients:

  • 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
  • 2 cans spread very thin on each dough (you will have some leftover)

  • sliced almonds

instructions:

How to cook Almond Filled Coffee Cake

  1. Heat the butter and milk to lukewarm. In a large mixer bowl using a flat beater, add the flour, yeast, salt to the bowl.
  2. Pour the lukewarm milk mixture slowly mixing in with the flour along with eggs and vanilla.
  3. Mix until it formed a sticky ball. 
  4. Place on a floured board and knead for around 3 minutes with floured hands. 
  5. Place into a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and a saucepan cover. Let rise for 2 hours.
  6. 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 for two rings or less). 
  7. I like less sugary coffee cakes.
  8. Using a scissors or very sharp knife slice the ring every 2 inches making around 10 cuts.
  9. Take the cut part, twist so the filling is facing upward.
  10. Cover again with a towel for around 25 minutes.
  11. Bake on 375 preheated oven brushing with egg whites and slices of almonds. 
  12. Bake until golden brown on top.
  13. Note: you can use any kind of filling you want I also make this with raspberry filling or pecans with cinnamon, sugar, and melted butter mixture. If you want a less sweet cake, use less filling and just a light spread on the dough.

  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.
