A small batch lemon coffee cake baked n a six inch cake pan is perfect for a two person household.  You just might have a little left over to take to work to enjoy with your Monday morning coffee.  I’m  a sucker for lemony desserts or breads.  The coffee cake is also great topped with fresh raspberries.  I got a little impatient and decided to bake and photograph right away so I could dig in!

Use your imagination and envision plump red raspberries gently nestled on top of this tasty  coffee cake!  I think I need to bake another one tomorrow after a quick mid week run to the farmers market  for those raspberries.

Coffee Cake

  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup flour

Creamy Lemon Glaze

  • 1/3 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice


Coffee Cake

  • Place oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium bowl beat the cream cheese and butter until nice and fluffy, about 1- 1/2 minutes with a hand mixer on low setting.
  • Beat in the sugar until well blended or "creamed".
  • Beat in the egg.
  • In a small bowl mix the flour and baking powder then add to the batter mixture.
  • Add the lemon juice and mix.
  • Spoon the batter into a 6 inch cake pan or mini loaf pans, spread evenly.
  • Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick or cake tester inserted comes out with just a few crumbs on it. Careful not to overcook.
  • Set aside and let cool while you make the lemon glaze.
  • Remove from pan and place on serving dish and drizzle with the lemon glaze.
  • Sprinkle top with powdered sugar.

Creamy Style Lemon Glaze

  • Mix all lemon glaze ingredients in a small bowl or measuring cup and stir with a small whisk until well blended and smooth.


Mixing the glaze in a small measuring cup with a pour spout makes it easy to drizzle the glaze over the coffee cake.
