9-to-5 Coffee Cake

Lodge Cast Iron | March 14, 2024

We’d never spoil a great film, but if you’ve seen 9 to 5, you get that a simple cup of coffee can kick off a lot of drama—if you know, you know. Inspired by Dolly Parton’s performance in this classic film, we created a coffee cake that’s got layers of streusel and is fit to be shared. Bake it up for your next office get-together in our special edition Dolly Parton cast iron and pour yourself a cup of ambition.

Dolly Parton Recipe Coffee Cake



2¼ cups all-purpose flour
1¼ cup sugar
1¼ teaspoon baking powder
¾ teaspoon baking soda
¾ teaspoon salt
1¼ cup sour cream
¾  cup unsalted butter, softened
3 large eggs
1¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

Streusel Topping

1¼ cup brown sugar, packed
¾ cup all-purpose flour
¾ cup unsalted butter, melted
2¼ teaspoons ground cinnamon
1¼ cup chopped pecans


½ cup confectioner’s sugar
2 tablespoons whole milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  2. Prepare the cake batter. In a large mixing bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, beat sour cream, softened butter, eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet, mixing until just combined, being careful not to overmix.
  3. Make the streusel topping. In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, flour, melted butter, cinnamon, and chopped nuts.
  4. Coat a 12 inch cast iron skillet with a nonstick baking spray like Baker’s Joy. Pour half of the cake batter into the skillet, spreading it evenly. Sprinkle ⅔ of the streusel topping over the batter, then add the remaining batter and top with the last of the streusel.
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the cake cool.
  6. Mix confectioner’s sugar and milk until dissolved. Drizzle over cooled cake, cut and serve.
