Maple Coffee Shop Scented Candleberry Candle


For Cinnamon Streusel:

  • 1/2 cup (99 grams) granulated sugar

  • 1/2 cup (60 grams) all-purpose flour

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 stick (56 grams) unsalted butter cold and cubed

For Coffee Cake:

  • 1 stick (113 grams) unsalted butter softened

  • 2/3 cup (132 grams) granulated sugar

  • 1 teaspoon maple extract

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 1/2 cup (180 grams) all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 cup buttermilk

For Maple Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup (57 grams) powdered sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon maple extract

  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream or milk


For Cinnamon Streusel:

  • In a small bowl stir together the sugar, flour, and cinnamon until fully combined.

  • Add in the butter and use clean hands or a fork to break the butter up until the texture is sandy and there are no pieces of butter larger than a pea. Set in the fridge until you are ready to use it.

For Coffee Cake:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Spray a 9-inch round cake pan or an 8×8 square cake pan with non-stick spray and lay parchment paper in a cross shape across the bottom of the pan. Set aside.

  • In a medium bowl combine the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or in a large bowl with a hand mixer, combine the softened butter and sugar. Cream the two together until it is light and fluffy.

  • Add the maple extract and mix until combined.

  • Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well between each addition.

  • Alternate adding the dry mixture and the buttermilk, making sure each addition is just combined before adding the next. Stop mixing occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl.

  • Pour the cake batter into the prepared pan and top with the streusel mixture. Use a butter knife to swirl the cinnamon streusel into the cake batter.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

  • Remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool while you prepare the glaze.

For Maple Glaze:

  • In a small bowl combine all of the ingredients and whisk until free of lumps.

  • Add more milk if the glaze is too thick.

  • Drizzle over the cooled coffee cake before serving.
