Overnight Berry Coffee Cake

There is nothing better than waking to the sweet aroma of cake baking in the oven. Imagine having a nice warm treat to go alongside your morning cup of coffee. With this overnight berry coffee cake, you can make perfect mornings a reality.

This was my first foray into overnight coffee cakes and now I’m addicted. I can’t wait to try out different flavor combinations. This berry coffee cake is an adaptation of this overnight cranberry coffee cake. Since we’re in the midst of berry season, I swapped in a mixture of fresh berries instead of the cranberries which I normally associate with Thanksgiving.

Overnight Berry Coffee Cake

I love baked goods that can be prepared in advance. You can make the batter and crumble topping the night before. Then first thing in the morning, just pop it in the oven. In no time, the kitchen will smell like a delicious bakery. No candles or potpourri necessary. Baking is life’s natural air freshener.

The batter for this coffee cake is quite thick. Don’t be alarmed. The thick better helps to hold and distribute the fruits within the cake. Use an offset spatula or the back of a spoon to level over the batter. (Can you see the little speckles of orange zest? The citrus really helps the flavors of this coffee cake pop!)

Overnight Berry Coffee Cake

Before baking, sprinkle the crumble topping and additional fresh berries over the batter. This recipe uses sliced almonds, but you can swap in whatever nuts you’re craving. Pistachios would be lovely with the berries and orange zest. You can even add some cacao nibs for extra crunch.

Overnight Berry Coffee Cake

Mixing this coffee cake is the easy part. It’s waiting for it cool from the oven that’s the most difficult part. It’s very important to let the coffee cake cool for about 20 minutes after baking. This will help the cake keep its structure. Once it’s had some time to rest, start slicing and enjoy this berry coffee cake warm! It’s great with a cup of coffee, some warm tea, or a tall glass of milk!

Overnight Berry Coffee Cake

Here are my changes to the original OVERNIGHT CRANBERRY COFFEE CAKE:

  • Instead of 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg, use 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Instead of 1 3/4 cup chopped fresh cranberries, use 2 cups of mixed fresh berries (strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, raspberry)
  • Instead of 1/4 cup orange juice, use 1/4 cup milk
  • Omit 1 Tablespoon finely shredded lemon peel

These Cherry Funfetti Almond Cupcakes combine your favorite almond funfetti cupcake with a sweet cherry-almond frosting.

I’ve been waiting to share these cupcakes with you guys for a few weeks now. I’m sorry I made you wait so long, but once you take a bite out of these Cherry Funfetti Almond Cupcakes, you’ll be telling yourself that it’s worth the wait.

These Cherry Almond Funfetti Cupcakes are a classic buttermilk almond funfetti cupcake with a maraschino cherry frosting.

These from-scratch cupcakes are made with a batter that uses buttermilk, which adds a bit of tenderness to the crumb and for me, it intensifies the flavor a bit. The original recipe for the Cherry-Almond Vanilla Cupcakes also called for some cherry juice in the cupcake itself, but I choose to use only buttermilk as the liquid agent.

To flavor the cupcakes, there is a mix of vanilla and almond extract, if you prefer a strong almond flavor, then you might consider using a little more almond extract and less vanilla. Either way you slice it, the combination lends itself perfectly for the funfetti flavor.

Be sure to load these cupcakes up with plenty of sprinkles! I like to use the jimmies because they don’t make the batter bleed like the nonpareil sprinkles. I usually fold them into the batter at the very end.

The cherry frosting is a great compliment for these almond funfetti cupcakes. For the frosting I altered the original recipe to use 1 cup of butter instead of ½ cup and I used 5 cups of powdered sugar instead of 4 cups. The cherry flavor in the frosting comes from the cherry juice and there is plenty of it in this frosting! To finish it off, you need just a touch of almond extract, but not much, because a little goes a long way.

I’m always looking for a way to funfetti-afi desserts, especially when it comes to cupcakes. As summer approaches, if you’re looking for a good no-bake funfetti dessert, you might consider trying my Oreo Funfetti Icebox Cake.

So let’s run down these changes one more time! Here is the original recipe for the Cherry-Almond Vanilla Cupcakes.

  • For the cupcakes, eliminate the cherry juice and replace it with buttermilk, so in addition to ¾ cups of buttermilk, add another 1/3 of a cup to the batter.
  • Add ½ cup sprinkles to the batter
  • For the frosting, add and extra ½ cup of butter, so 1 cup total and add an additional 1 cup of powdered sugar (5 cups total).
