Buttermilk Coffee Cake

13 Jun

I had some leftover buttermilk in the refrigerator and I wanted to find a recipe so I could use it up.  I came across a buttermilk coffee cake recipe on and this is my interpretation.  Enjoy!


  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon


  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup buttermilk


  1. In a bowl, combine the first five ingredients and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar.
  3. Add the egg and vanilla.
  4. Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
  5. Add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk. 
  6. Spread half of the batter into a greased 8 x 8-inch baking pan.
  7. Sprinkle with half of the topping. Carefully spread with remaining batter and sprinkle with remaining topping.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees F for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
