Greek Yogurt Coffee Cake Loaf

Warm, gooey sugar and cinnamon coffee cake loaf recipe is the ultimate decadent breakfast or dessert. If you're wondering what you can make with Greek yogurt, you have to try baking up this version of quick bread.

Here's what you'll need...

You'll Need:

– ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter room temperature – 1 ¾ cup granulated sugar divided – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – 2 large eggs – 2 cups all purpose flour

You'll Need:

– 1 teaspoon baking powder – 1 teaspoon baking soda – 1 cup whole milk plain Greek yogurt – ¾ cup firmly packed light brown sugar – 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Equipment:

- Mixing bowls - Stand mixer or electric mixer - Whisk - Loaf pan (2) - Offset spatula

Instructions:

Heat the oven to 350° F. Add butter and 1 cup (198 grams) granulated sugar to a medium-sized mixing bowl. Beat butter and sugar using a stand or hand-held mixer, until pale in color, about 2 minutes. Beat in vanilla extract and eggs until well combined.

Instructions:

Sift together flour, baking soda, and baking powder in a separate bowl. Alternate adding the dry ingredients and Greek yogurt to the butter and sugar mixture with the mixer running on low speed. Mix just until all the ingredients are incorporated.

Instructions:

In a small bowl whisk brown sugar, remaining ¾ cup (149 grams) granulated sugar, and cinnamon. Set aside. Pour and spread half of the batter into two prepared loaf pans. Top each loaf with a fourth of the cinnamon sugar mixture.

Instructions:

Add the last half of the batter into each pan. Smooth batter with an offset spatula or knife. If the batter is difficult to spread, run hot water over the spatula/knife. Sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar on top of each loaf.

Instructions:

Bake for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool coffee cake in the pan set on a wire rack for at least 1 hour before removing from the pan.
