White Chocolate and Lemon Coffee Cake


This streusel-topped lemon coffee cake has white chocolate chips mixed in for added texture and sweetness.


  • cooking spray
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons lemon zest
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ½ cup white chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat an 8-inch springform or cake pan with cooking spray and line the bottom with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. Stir flour and sugars together in a small bowl with a fork. Add melted butter and mix until crumbly, leaving some large crumbs. Set topping aside while you make the cake.
  3. Combine butter, sugar, and lemon zest in a large bowl and cream with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs, lemon juice, baking powder, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon. Beat until well combined, about 3 minutes. Add in flour gradually on low speed, mixing until combined. Add sour cream and milk and mix batter until smooth, about 4 minutes.
  4. Fold white chocolate chips into the batter. Pour into the prepared pan and sprinkle with the topping.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until light golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for about 30 minutes before removing from the pan and serving.
