4 Stunning Overnight Coffee Crumble Cake

If you are looking for some fun ways to make overnight coffee crumble cake, then here are some amazing recipes we have found that will leave you impressed with the results. Give the following recipes a look, and pick a few out to try! 

1. Traditional Overnight Coffee Crumble Cake

Making traditional overnight coffee crumble cake is easy! The hardest part is waiting for the cake to cool before you can slice it up and start eating! To try out this stunning recipe for a traditional and classic coffee crumble cake, you will need:

  • ¾ cup of soft butter
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 6 tablespoons of flour (separate, for the topping)
  • ½ cup for brown sugar
  • ½ cup of chopped nuts (almonds, walnuts, or pecans)

Mix up the butter, sugar, eggs, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt all together. It is best if you add one ingredient at a time, going in the above order. Then once you have a mixture, begin to add the buttermilk and stir. Finally, stir in the vanilla to finish your batter. 

Grease and flour a baking pan. Pour your cake batter into the pan. Cover the pan tightly with some plastic wrap and chill from anywhere between 8 to 24 hours. 

When you are ready, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix your streusel topping by mixing together the final 5 ingredients of the recipe – the 3 tablespoons of melted butter, the 6 tablespoons of separated flour, the brown sugar, the cinnamon

and the nuts. This will give you your streusel topping to sprinkle over the top of your cake. Bake your cake for 35 minutes until a knife or wooden pick is inserted into the center and comes out clean.

2. Vegan Overnight Coffee Crumble Cake 

Because more traditional overnight coffee crumble cake recipes contain a lot of animal products, not everyone can enjoy it due to their strict dietary restrictions. If you are vegan or are planning on serving overnight coffee crumble cake to some vegan guests, then here is a great vegan recipe for overnight coffee crumble cake using plant-based alternative ingredients. You will need:

  • 1 cup of non dairy milk (we recommend almond milk)
  • 1 ½ cups of flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder 
  • ¼ teaspoon of baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon of salt 
  • 1 tablespoon of non dairy yogurt 
  • 1 teaspoon of vinegar
  • ⅓ cup of sugar
  • ¼ cup of neutral oil
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • ½ cup of flour (for the streusel) 
  • ⅓ cup of brown sugar
  • ⅓ teaspoon of salt (separate, for the streusel)
  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon of vegan butter
  • 2 tablespoons of neutral oil (separate, for the streusel)

To start, make your cake mix by adding the non dairy milk, non dairy yogurt, vinegar, sugar, neutral oil, and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Mix your dry ingredients together in another bowl (this will be the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt). Then, combine the two bowls together and mix well. You can add some extra cinnamon or ginger for a really strong coffee taste later on. 

Then, line a baking pan with parchment paper and pour the batter in. Cover it tightly with plastic wrap and leave to chill in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours. 

When you are ready to bake your cake, heat up your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix your streusel by adding the flour, brown suga, salt, cinnamon, vegan butter, and neutral oil together in a bowl. Spread the streusel mix over the top of your cake.

Bake your cake in the oven for 45 minutes maximum. Remember to let it cool before serving, and now – everyone with a vegan diet can now enjoy a slice of overnight coffee crumb cake! 

3. Apple Overnight Coffee Crumble Cake

Overnight coffee crumble cake pairs notoriously well with fruits – one of the most frequently added being apple. If you want to try out a sweet yet tart overnight coffee crumble cake, then just follow this very easy recipe. You will need: 

  • 2 cups of flour 
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 ½ cups of chopped toasted walnuts (optional, but recommended)
  • ⅓ cup of brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup of white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons of melted butter
  • ½ cup of butter (separate)
  • 1 cup of white sugar (separate)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ½ teaspoons of vanilla yogurt
  • 1 cup of plain yogurt
  • 2 honeycrisp apples

Generously grease down a baking pan and start to make your cake mix.

Whisk together flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda together. In a separate bowl, mix together the butter and sugar until it is well blended. Add one egg at a time, whisking them until the mixture is smooth both times. Add the yogurt and vanilla extract, then add the two bowls together. Whisk until the flour disappears.

With your cake mix nearly ready, it is time to prepare the apples. Remove their coves and cut them into slices. Cube the apples and add them to the cake batter, folding them in until the mixture is just combined. 

Pour the batter into the baking pan, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 8 hours. When you are ready to bake your cake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix together the walnuts, brown and white sugar, salt, cinnamon and melted butter to make the streusel and sprinkle it over the top of your cake batter.

Bake your cake for 40 minutes and remember to leave it cool before serving! 

4. Cherry Overnight Coffee Crumble Cake

Another great fruit to add to your overnight coffee crumble cake are cherries! Dark and rich, they provide a woody sweetness to any cake they are added to – and coffee crumb cake is no different! To make an overnight coffee crumble cake using cherries, you will need: 

  • 3 cups of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 21 ounces of cherry pie filling
  • ½ cup of sugar (separate, for the streusel)
  • 1 cup of flour (separate, for the streusel)
  • 6 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

To start, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and sugar. In a separate bowl, mix together the sour cream, butter, and eggs. Combine the two bowls to make your cake batter. 

Flour and grease a baking pan before pouring in the batter. Smooth it over, cover the pan with plastic wrap, and chill your batter in the refrigerator for 8 to 24 hours. 

To bake your cake, preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Top your set cake with the can of cherry pie filling. While that sets, you can make the streusel. Mix together the rest of the flour and sugar with the melted butter and cinnamon. Sprinkle it over the top of the cherry pie filling. 

Bake your cake for 40 minutes until it is golden brown. Let it stand before cutting, and you will have a delicious cherry overnight coffee crumble cake! 

Frequently Asked Questions

4 Stunning Overnight Coffee Crumble Cakes

Why Does Overnight Coffee Crumble Cake Not Contain Any Coffee Or Coffee Grounds?

This is because coffee cake often refers to a cake that is served as an accompaniment to coffee, rather than a cake that contains coffee as an ingredient.

The original coffee crumble cake was made in Germany centuries ago, back when coffee as we know it was a rare and expensive ingredient. So, German women made their kaffeeklatsch (coffee cake) using more easy to buy ingredients like nuts and fruit. 

When German women eventually migrated to the US, they brought with them their cakes and served them up during coffee breaks – hence they became known as ‘coffee cake’ despite not containing any coffee related ingredients. 

Overnight coffee crumble cake was one of these cakes – and it never contained any coffee! You can find some recipes from the 60s that use coffee as an ingredient, but in modern days, we prefer to use spices like cinnamon and ginger to make our overnight coffee crumble cake delicious! 

What Other Fruits Can I Add To My Overnight Coffee Crumble Cake?

A lot of fruits pair well with overnight coffee crumble cake. We included recipes for apple and cherry crumble cake above, but you can also try fruits like gooseberries. Other ingredients used as variants include rhubarb, poppy seeds or just creme. 

How Long Does Overnight Coffee Crumble Cake Last For?

Freshly baked coffee crumble cake will last in a refrigerator for about 1 week as long as it is properly stored in an airtight container. Leaving the cake out at room temperature will allow it to dry out quicker, so it will only last two days maximum otherwise.

Those were our favorite four recipes for overnight coffee crumble cake! Clearly, this classic treat can be served with a lot of different ingredients, so pick the one that is best for you depending on your preferences and diet.
