Today is National Coffee Day, which really doesn’t mean anything to me since I don’t drink coffee. But from what I can tell, I am way in the minority on this one.
Even though I may not drink coffee, I have many coffee lovers (addicts?) in my life. My husband would be the closest one. And some of them are sensitive to dairy, just like I am. So, in honor of them (and me), I took a favorite coffee cake recipe that I usually make with cream cheese and reworked it so that I could make it with LACTAID® milk instead!
I also turned it into an overnight recipe, because when you want something to be ready in the morning (to have with your coffee!) you might not want to get out the measuring cups and ingredients. So much easier to just pop something in the oven that you put together the night before!

Why I use LACTAID®
While I don’t know what it’s like to have to give up drinking milk in coffee, I know how I would feel if I had to give up milk in cereal, or dipping chocolate cookies into a nice cold glass of milk, or drinking milk with chocolate cake. Thanks to LACTAID® I don’t have to, and you don’t either! No more dairy envy!
LACTAID® milk tastes just like regular milk because it is 100% real milk, and contains all of the same benefits, but without the stomach discomfort. And I can use it in recipes that call for dairy. There’s something that a lot of people don’t realize: Heating milk doesn’t affect the lactose in dairy. Baked goods made with milk bother my stomach the same as milk straight from the carton. Using LACTAID® milk in my baked goods is an easy way for me to enjoy what I bake without getting sick!

Overnight Coffee Cake
I made this coffee cake over the weekend, while my family was out of town. I had to give half of it away to a neighbor to keep myself from eating all of it. It was so good!
Since you leave it in the fridge for up to 18 hours before baking, it’s the perfect recipe when you’re hosting overnight guests, or to bring to a brunch, or when you just need something special in the morning.
