Glazed Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake

I love cinnamon, and my husband loves cake. So this scrumptious recipe went over famously in our house. Just serve it with your favorite coffee (ours is Peet’s Coffee’s Major Dickason’s Blend) and dish it up for your next brunch or morning business meeting. 


  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoon milk
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a 10-inch bundt pan with cooking spray. 
  2. Blend 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar and eggs. Add yogurt and butter, beat well. Add flour, baking soda, and baking powder and mix well. Stir in vanilla and nuts.
  3. Stir together remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar and cinnamon.
  4. Pour half of the batter into the prepared plan. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon sugar mixture. Cover with remaining batter.
  5. Bake for 8 minutes. Lower heat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for an additional 40 minutes.
  6. Loosen cake from sides of pan with a knife, let cake cool for 10 minutes then flip carefully onto a plate.
  7. To create glaze, whisk together milk and powdered sugar until smooth.
  8. Poke holes into top of cake with a wooden cake rod, then brush cake with glaze and allow to cool completely. Cover.

    Boy does that look good! Did you know that my sister and Mark are in Texas? They are contemplating coming to Texarkana. The problem is my brother is dfed and it is uncomfortable to come visit family that see nothing wrong with him and them not seeing him. So, it will be interesting to see if they decide to stop. If I were you, Heather; I would encourage them to come! Love,

      Hey Deb,

      We hope you try this recipe. It is so delish! We talked to Donna tonight and hopefully they’ll make it to Texarkana before they return home. Would be so good to see them. Thanks for the heads up!
