Everything from sweet, savory, comfort dishes, casseroles to beverages. There’s an amazing array of bloggers contributing to this fantastic week not to mention an amazing giveaway thanks to some stellar sponsors. All of the details are listed below. 

Let me introduce to you my first recipe of the week: White Chocolate Cherry Coffee Cake. Yup, I went with a desserty addition because to me brunch needs a touch of sweet. Am I right?

My other #EasterBrunchWeek recipes, check ’em out: 



There’s nothing like a sweet coffee cake alongside a great cup of coffee. No matter how big or small your brunch spread may be, a touch of sweet is always welcomed.

What I seem to find is that brunch is a long casual meal, so of course, while winding up the feeding frenzy, it’s nice to have another cup of coffee and something sweet to wrap it all up nicely.

White Chocolate Cherry Coffee Cake is super easy to whip up and can be made ahead of time. You know I love being able to prep ahead of time, that’s the way I roll. 



What do you need to make White Chocolate Cherry Coffee Cake?

  • White cake mix
  • Stonyfield Organic Yogurt
  • Eggs
  • Almond extract
  • Cherry pie filling
  • White chocolate chip morsels
  • Powdered sugar
  • Milk



One of the things that sends White Chocolate Cherry Coffee Cake to over the top great status, is the texture. Stonyfield Organic yogurt is the ingredient to thank for that. The texture is transformed from “cake” to tender cake which is simply dreamy. 



I love having a container of Stonyfield Organic yogurt within my reach in the refrigerator. There are so many useful ways to incorporate it into everyday recipes, I use it all the time for dressings, desserts, baking, breakfast and snacking. YUM!



Some tips for making White Chocolate Cherry Coffee Cake:

  • Spray your pan, I know you know this. It just makes life easier.
  • No white cake mix, use yellow, that’s fine.
  • No almond extract, use vanilla.
  • I used Stonyfield Organic Vanilla lowfat yogurt.
  • Add some toasted slivered almonds to the top after drizzling the glaze if desired.
  • Cover leftovers, it’ll be great tomorrow too.
