This Eggnog Coffee Cake with Cream Cheese Glaze would be a perfect Christmas morning breakfast! What better way to start the most magical holiday of the year than with a warm slice straight from the oven (just ignore my instructions to cool completely..ha) and a big mug of coffee?
You could definitely make this coffee cake a day in advance, too. I can attest, after eating half of the pan over the last few days, that this cake is just as delicious at room temperature as it is warm.
Another fun thing about this recipe? This coffee cake can be made completely dairy free if you choose! Since I developed this recipe for GO VEGGIE, using their vegan and dairy-free plain cream cheese, I wanted to be sure the entire coffee cake could be made dairy free.
So I did something I’ve never done before and baked with vegan butter. I also used dairy free eggnog and dairy free yogurt. The end result? I truly could not tell if there was any sort of dairy substitute!
That said, this eggnog coffee cake can absolutely made non-dairy free. Just use regular butter, eggnog, yogurt, and cream cheese. Either way, this coffee cake is a deliciously perfect way to get your Christmas morning started!
