Amaretto Cream Cheese Coffee Cake Recipe is a dense coffee cakes topped with extra crumb topping and filled with a ribbon of cream cheese. You want to wake up to this!
We had house guests for a week recently and I didn’t bake at all during that time. The day they left I couldn’t wait to get in the kitchen and bake this Amaretto Cream Cheese Coffee Cake Recipe. I have this wonderful bundt cake that has a cream cheese filling. And, I had previously made this Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake that the family loved. I got the idea to combine the too cakes; plus, I wanted to use my new little springform pan!

- Add remaining batter over cream cheese. Smooth evenly.

- Bake in 325 degree oven 45 to 50 minutes. Center will be set and not 'jiggly' when it is fully cooked. Cool completely before slicing and serving.
In full disclosure, I had a new cute little 5 inch springform pan that I was dying to use. I used it AND a 10 inch spring-form pan. My cook time was the same as listed. Store in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks.
