Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • ½ c. butter (1 stick), softened
  • 1.5 c. sugar
  • ½ c. vanilla yogurt
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1.5 Tbsp heavy cream
  • 3 eggs
  • 1.5 c. flour
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • FOR CINNAMON SWIRL MIX:
  • ⅛ c. sugar
  • 1.5 tsp. cinnamon
  • FOR THE ICING:
  • 1 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • 1 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • ⅛ c. heavy cream
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ¾ c. powdered sugar
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350. Line a 9x5 loaf pan with non-stick foil and spray well with cooking spray or use parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar until fluffy. Mix in the vanilla yogurt. Next stir in the heavy cream and vanilla.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each one.
  4. In a separate small bowl, mix the ⅛ c. sugar and cinnamon.
  5. Pour half of your cake batter into the loaf pan and spread evenly. Next sprinkle half of the cinnamon/sugar mixture on top. Then pour half of the remaining batter on top of the cinnamon/sugar. Then sprinkle the remaining the cinnamon sugar on top of the batter. Now top that with the remaining batter and spread evenly.
  6. Bake in the oven about 50-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. I would set the timer for 50 minutes and then add additional time in 5-10 minute increments after that until finished.
  7. Allow to cool and then gently remove from loaf pan.
  8. For the icing, mix together the butter and cream cheese. Next add in the cream, vanilla, and powdered sugar. Mix well. Then spread over the loaf. Allow to set for at least an hour before slicing and serving. Enjoy!

Easy Cheese Danish {Starbucks Copycat Recipe}

Copycat Starbucks Cheese Danish | www.shariblogs.com

I have been so excited to share this recipe with you for an Easy Cheese Danish.  It is a Starbucks copycat recipe and I know you are going to love it.  I had never tried this kind of danish before, but one day when we were at Starbucks my husband made me take a bite of his.  I actually liked it.  A lot.  I get cravings for them now.  We are out of town right now at the Opryland Hotel in Nashville and I might have had one already.  I mean there is a Starbucks right here in the lobby.  How convenient is that??!!

If you ask me, the more cream cheese filling the better so I load these suckers up.  You can adjust it to your liking very easily.

Ingredients
  • 1 can Crescent rolls
  • 1 pkg cream cheese
  • ½ c. sugar
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • 1½ Tbsp. of beaten egg
Egg Wash
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp water
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Beat your cream cheese and sugar until nice and creamy.
  3. Add the vanilla and beaten egg; mix until well combined.
  4. Open and unfold your crescent rolls. You will want to create squares by putting two triangles together and pinching together the seams to make one square. Do this with the whole can.
  5. Once your squares are made, spoon your cream cheese filling into the center of each square. Fill to your liking, but don't overfill as it will run out the sides when baking.
  6. Make egg wash by combining 1 egg and 1 Tbsp of water in a small bowl and beat.
  7. Brush the edges of each pastry square with the egg wash. Fold each corner in towards the center until they almost touch each other. You can also connect them if you want.
  8. Transfer each pastry to the lined baking sheet. Do this very carefully!
  9. Bake for 15-18 minutes.
  10. Enjoy!
