There’s something about the holidays that make us all itch to get into the kitchen and bake. Sweet Potato Coffee Cake is a tried and true breakfast cake that isn’t too sweet. It has loads of sweet potato flavor and is best enjoyed while it’s warm, making it ideal for a cold morning.
The secret ingredient, Crisco® vegetable oil, ensures that this coffee cake will stay moist. Whether you make this coffee cake for breakfast or a mid-afternoon snack, I’m certain you will enjoy it.

I’m always inspired to make breakfast during the holiday season. There’s just something about whipping up a warm, cozy breakfast for the family that has traveled halfway across the US to celebrate with us. Everyone’s morning will be much happier with the scent of sweet potato coffee cake in the air.
Coffee cake should be a breakfast staple in your kitchen. And this recipe is the one you need in your repertoire. The batter is thick and packed full of mashed sweet potato. It bakes up tall and fluffy. Crisco® vegetable oil is used in place of butter to yield an impeccably moist cake. It adds to the wonderfully lush texture that practically melts in your mouth.
I chose Crisco® brand because it is the only brand of vegetable oil I use. You really can’t beat the quality. And if you are lucky, you can catch it on sale at your local Publix. Look at that deal! It’s a fantastic bargain.
The streusel is made with brown sugar, white sugar, flour, oats, pecans, cinnamon, and butter. The butter melts during baking and blends with the sugars to create a wonderfully crunchy topping. And it’s a super thick layer of topping.
If you’re not into the whole cake for breakfast idea, you can enjoy it as an after dinner snack. The glaze adds enough extra sweetness that you could certainly get away with serving sweet potato coffee cake for dessert.
