Moist pineapple coffeecake with vanilla-flavored cake, topped with a spiced streusel. Easy to make in an 8×8-inch pan, perfect for breakfast or brunch.
I’ve noticed that between my mom and I, we make a lot of coffeecakes. It is one of the easier baked goods to throw together quickly, which is a plus. This version is a pineapple coffeecake topped with a tasty streusel.
Fresh or canned pineapple can be used, but we were of the opinion to not use crushed pineapple as the pieces were just too small and the taste got lost. Go for tidbits or chopped fresh diced pineapple instead.
This was a nice twist on traditional coffeecake. Enjoy!
Pineapple Coffeecake with Streusel Topping
- 8 Inch Square Baking Pan
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup Greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 1/2 cups diced fresh pineapple or 20 oz. can pineapple tidbits, drained (crushed not recommended)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 teaspoon pineapple extract recommended but optional
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8×8-inch baking pan.
- Prepare the streusel: Combine all the streusel ingredients in a bowl and cut the butter into the dry ingredients until crumbly. Set aside.
- Prepare the cake: Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl.
- In a large bowl, whisk the egg, oil, Greek yogurt, vanilla, and pineapple extract (if using) until well combined and smooth.
- Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and stir until just incorporated. Fold in the pineapple tidbits; the batter will be thick. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
- Scrape the batter into the prepared baking pan. Top with the prepared streusel topping.
- Bake at 350°F until the top is golden and a toothpick inserted comes out clean, approximately 30-35 minutes. Check for doneness starting at 30 minutes, especially if using a metal pan at high altitude.
- Cool slightly and serve warm.
