Peanut butter and coffee cake.  My two favorite things put in one little world of decadence.

I have always thought known coffee cake was such a delightful cake to enjoy at any given time.  

I think it’s perfectly partnered up with girlfriend talk and of course, coffee.  And, for the perfect straight-out-of-the-oven bedtime snack with my guys.  Both of which are definitely a given.

Moist, tender Peanut Butter Crumb Coffee Cake with a Peanut Butter Glaze drizzled all on top.  It’s a perfect easy made-from-scratch coffee cake– for your peanut butter sweet tooth!

Peanut Butter Crumb Coffee Cake with Peanut Butter Glaze with SimplyGloria.com #CrumbCakeIt’s Mystery Dish day and I’m so honored to be hosting this month!  

Here are the ingredients I came up with and challenged the Mystery Dish bloggers to choose at least three ingredients in their creations:  cherries, peanut butter, wontons, baking chips, jalapenos, eggs, potatoes, sweetened condensed milk, Greek yogurt,  pork loin, beans (canned or dry), and buttermilk.

Despite an abundance of love I have for jalapenos (as listed above), the fiery item was just not in the works with this peanut butter action I was feeling.  So I sadly put the hotness aside and started working on a peanut buttery delight!

Making this homemade coffee cake with peanut butter is a breeze!

What makes this coffee cake so moist and tender is of course the creamy peanut butter.  Along with vanilla Greek yogurt and buttermilk = super moist!  Stir together them all together with the vanilla and set off to the side.

This is the fun part!  Cut the cold butter into pieces and place in a large mixing bowl of flour, dark brown sugar and granulated sugar.  (You can use a pastry cutter, two knives, or your fingertips.)  Cut the butter into the flour and sugar mixture until it looks crumbly.  By cutting the butter into the flour mixture, it gives the cake a delicate texture as it cooks.

Remember to take out 1 cup of the butter/flour mixture before adding the rest of the ingredients. Set it in a separate bowl with (more) dark brown sugar.  It will be for your crumble topping.

Pour the peanut butter mixture into the flour mixture with a beaten egg, baking powder and salt.

Over mixing makes for an unhappy batter.  Only mix the (thick) batter until you no longer see the flour.

Put the batter in an 8 inch by 8 inch baking dish lined with parchment paper.  Start piling on the crumble mixture.

The crumble on top of the peanut butter goodness is purely divine.

Bake it in a preheated oven and test with a toothpick in the center in the last few minutes.  Allow to cool just a little bit and drizzle with the peanut butter glaze!

    This looks so good. I will make it next week when my freshly-baked corn muffin supply runs out. I especially appreciate that you give the option to print the recipe with or without the picture. I go through my colored ink too quickly and love the opportunity to chose.

      Maralyn, you are going to LOVE this! I go through my colored ink fast, too…. because of an 8 year old that loves to print things off and doesn’t use the option button. 😉 Enjoy! Hugs!
