Convenience Store Coffee Cake

  • Prep Time 0:10
  • Cook Time 0:22
  • Estimated Cost $14.00

I’m in on vacation in Boston this week, visiting Ryan, one of my best friends from college. After a fabulous and very late evening last night at a fundraiser, I should have done what one typically does on vacation: sleep in and nurse a hangover with coffee and a greasy breakfast. Instead I woke up at 6 AM, compelled to bake coffee cake.

Ryan rarely cooks and therefore didn’t have much in the way of coffee cake ingredients, so early this morning I wandered down to the nearby convenience store and found everything I needed for this easy, satisfying recipe. Normally I’m not much of a fan of baking mix, but it includes flour, baking soda and baking powder in one box so it’s actually a pretty good deal.


  • 2 cups baking mix $4
  • 1 cup milk $1.50 for 1 pint
  • 1/8 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted, plus more for greasing pan $1.50 for a stick
  • 1/4 cup white sugar Pantry
  • 1 apple, coarsely chopped $1
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped $3 for a 2-oz can
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar Pantry
  • 2 tsp cinnamon $1.50 for 1 oz.
  • 2 tsp ground ginger $1.50 for 1 oz.

Recipe Serves 4-6


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease an 8x8 square pan or an 8" pie plate.
  2. Whisk together baking mix, milk, white sugar, and melted butter. Stir in apple, walnuts, cinnamon and ginger.
  3. Sprinkle brown sugar over the top and bake for 18-22 minutes or until a fork inserted into the center comes out clean.

Hey Gabi. If I wanted to make this vegan, would I be able to substitute soy milk for the regular milk and grease the pan with vegetable oil instead of butter? I’ve never been able to figure out if baking needs actual milk or if soy milk will allow for the proper baking chemistry.
