Cloned Entenmanns Cheese Filled Crumb Coffee Cake

 Being from NY there are certain things you just crave at times, this is one of those things.  You can find this here in KS but not on a regular basis.  Not to mention the cost, you would think there were flakes of gold in the recipe.  Since I've retired I really enjoying cooking and baking.  I was searching for a cheese type coffee cake when I found this.  

WOW I was so happy, almost did a happy dance.  I will say this is so close to the store one, but it still needs more cheese in the middle.  So will work on that.

Homemade Entenmann’s Cheese Filled Crumb Coffee Cake: (makes 2 but I think it would also make 3 good size ones.  you could do different fruits)
4-4 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup milk
6 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup warm water
1 1/2 tsp yeast
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 Tbsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
Combine the milk and butter in a microwave safe bowl and heat until butter is melted.  In a large mixing bowl, combine the milk mixture with the sugar and salt and let cool.  In a small bowl, combine the water and yeast and let foam. When the milk mixture is cooled a bit, add the eggs and yeast (the point of the cooling is to not kill the yeast, so don’t let it get cold).  With a dough hook, mix in the flour.  (If using a wooden spoon and elbow grease, mix in the flour and then knead on a floured surface until dough is smooth and soft – about 5-10 minutes).  Cover and let rise until double in bulk; about 1-1 1/2 hours.  After rising, punch down and divide in half.  Roll out on a large jelly roll pan to fit the length of the pan and almost the width.  Spread the filling down the middle of each cake and either fold over the outer halves but leave a space down the center over the filling. Sprinkle the streusel equally on top of the two coffee cakes.  Cover and let rise another 20 minutes and preheat your oven  to 375 degrees.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.  When cooled, dust with powdered sugar.  I baked one of these and put the other in the freezer with cooking it.  I wrapped it in parchment paper then aluminum foil. 
the filling:
1 8 ounce brick cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/3 cup flour
Mix all ingredients until smooth.
the streusel:
3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup sugar
4 Tbsp butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon
In a bowl, mix the streusel ingredients with a pastry blender or fork until crumbly.
Sure hope you try this, you won't be disappointed.  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week.  Always remember to Find the Time to Do All the Things YOU love.
