  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons butter (1 stick, room temperature)

  • 1 cup Nutella (warmed for easy spreading)

Crumble Topping

  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter (melted)


  • confectioner's sugar (to sprinkle on top)


  • Preheat oven to 350 F and liberally grease the bundt pan.

Crumble Topping

  • Add ¼ cup sugar and ¼ cup flour in a small mixing bowl and mix it with 2 tablespoons of melted butter until it forms crumbles. I use a fork for this.
  • Top the batter with the crumbles
  • Put pan in the oven and bake for 45 minutes until your tester comes out clean.
  • Allow the coffee cake to cool in the pan for 5 - 10 minutes before removing it from the pan and on to a wire rack.
  • (This is optional) If you want to give the cake some 'color', sift some comfectioner's sugar on top.
  • Slice a piece, then eat it.

  • Enjoy


Helpful tips
  • Take the butter out at least a half hour before starting the recipe. I usually unwrap the butter, place it into the mixer and cut it into pats.
  • I use about a cup of Nutella for this coffee cake. Use as little or as much as you like.
  • I use the 9 cup Bundt pan in this recipe, but if you prefer to make it in a larger pan like the 12 cup, there is a slider in the recipe card that will adjust the ingredient amounts for you.
  • If the Nutella is too stiff to work with, heat it up in a small saucepan.
