Almond Coffee Cake

“This cake is doubly delicious due to the white chocolate and cream cheese filling,” notes Mary Shivers, Ada, Oklahoma. “I've made it for social gatherings and as a homey snack on chilly mornings. One piece leads to another!”
  • Total Time
    Prep: 35 min. + rising Bake: 20 min. + cooling
  • Makes
    8-10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3/4 cup white baking chips

Directions

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 15x9-in. rectangle. Transfer to a lightly greased baking sheet.
  • In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and extract (filling will be soft). Spread down center of rectangle; sprinkle with chips. On each long side, cut 1-in.-wide strips, about 1/2 in. from filling.
  • Starting at one end, fold alternating strips at an angle across filling. Seal ends. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 350°. Brush with milk. Bake 20-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
  • For glaze, in a small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar and extract. Stir in enough milk to achieve desired consistency. Drizzle over coffee cake. Sprinkle with almonds.

    This is really over the top. It got a lot of comments when I made it for a brunch. It's just a little different. It takes a little time but it's worth the effort.
