Now that you have all the ingredients laid out for the perfect Bread Machine Lattice Coffee Cake Recipe, let’s look at some tips to ensure you get the best possible results.

Firstly, bread machine yeast is an essential ingredient. Make sure it is fresh and not expired. If your yeast has been sitting in your pantry for too long, it may not activate properly and affect the consistency of your coffee cake dough.

Next, when measuring flour, avoid packing it down as this can lead to over-measuring, thus producing dense and heavy cake bread. Instead, lightly spoon the flour into a measuring cup and level it off with a knife.

To guarantee that you get the fluffy sweet bread that every coffee cake should have, use tepid milk instead of cold milk when making sweet bread dough. This helps to activate the yeast and allows it to rise better.

Additionally, after filling the lattice coffee cake dough with cream cheese or cherries or any other filling, braid the dough before baking it in a preheated oven. Braiding produces an evenly baked golden brown finished product also giving it a more professional look.

If you want to make variations of this recipe such as apple lattice coffee cake or apricot almond lattice coffee cake, pioneer woman has great recipe ideas for these kinds of desserts.

Finally, make sure you allow the cake to cool for at least 15 minutes before glazing with sweet icing drizzled on top. To add some flair to your coffee cake bread try adding some cinnamon or even some strawberry preserves on top of your cream cheese or cherry n’ cheese lattice before braiding and baking it.

By following these simple tips, you are sure to have your Bread Machine Lattice Coffee Cake Recipe turn out perfectly delicious every time.


As with any recipe, you may have some questions or concerns before trying it out. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions (FAQ) and their answers to help ensure your success with this bread machine lattice coffee cake recipe. So, let’s dive in!

How to make a Mary Berry coffee cake?

To prepare a delectable coffee-flavored walnut cake, you will need some unsalted butter (softened), caster sugar, self-raising flour, baking powder, eggs, chopped walnuts, and a tablespoon of coffee essence. Don’t forget to grease the pan with some extra butter before pouring in the mixture.

Why has my bread stopped rising in my breadmaker?

Proper measurement of yeast is required in making bread. If there is not enough yeast, the bread will not rise fully, but if there is too much, it will rise and fall. It is crucial to keep an eye on the dough while it rises and bakes, as collapsed dough will appear similar to dough that did not rise when cooked.

Will coffee granules dissolve in cake?

When making coffee-flavored cake and buttercream, you don’t necessarily have to grind the espresso granules. Instead, you can dissolve them in hot water for the cake batter and a small amount of hot water for the buttercream. This way, you can use the granules as they are without the need to grind them.

How do you elevate a coffee cake?

As a barista, I can share with you some tips and tricks for making coffee-flavored baked goods. The first and most common way to infuse coffee flavor into the batter is by adding instant espresso powder. However, there’s another way that can give a more natural and subtle coffee taste. Consider brewing a strong coffee and using it as a liquid ingredient in the batter.

To take things up a notch, you can make a mocha swirl to add extra flavor and texture to your baked goods. Simply mix some melted chocolate with brewed coffee and swirl it into the batter before baking. Another way to intensify the coffee flavor is to add coffee to the crumb topping. This will give your baked goods a delicious crunchy texture that complements the coffee taste.

Lastly, if you want to add a boozy kick to your baked goods, you can finish them off with a latte glaze spiked with your favorite liqueur. This will not only give your treats a unique twist but also a delicious aroma that will make them irresistible. Keep these tips in mind, and you can take your baked goods to the next level with a touch of coffee.
