Costco’s Cinnamon Butter Pound Coffeecake Nutrition

April 24th, 2008 · 9 Comments

So, it’s easy to love the Cinnamon Butter Pound Coffeecake from Costco (read my earlier post to see how much we love it) but how bad is it to eat a slice? Are we talking a little bit of cheating on your diet or so much you need to go on a celery and water plan for the next three days? Thanks to the nice people at Costco we can all finally put our questions to rest because they’ve given me the nutritional information for that yummy cake.

Cinnamon Butter Pound CakeCinnamon Butter Pound Coffeecake, 12cut/42oz
(Item#: 35617)
Serving Size: 1 piece (99g/3.5oz)
Calories 400
Calories From Fat 150
Total Fat 17 g (26%)
Saturated Fat 10 g (49%)
Trans Fat 0.5 g
Cholesterol 80 mg (26%)
Sodium 330 mg (14%)
Total Carbohydrate 60 g (20%)
Dietary Fiber 1 g (5%)
Sugars 37 g
Protein 4 g
Vitamin A 10%
Vitamin C 0%
Calcium 4%
Iron 10%
Polyunsaturated Fat 1.5 g
Monounsaturated Fat 5 g
Thiamin 10%
Riboflavin 10%
Niacin 8%
Percent daily values (DV) based on a 2,000 calorie diet.



So, it could be a lot worse, right? You don’t have to shoot yourself if you eat a slice (as long as it is a 12th of the cake). And, you can always console yourself with the fact that with each slice you are getting 4 grams of protein and 10% of your RDA for vitamin A, iron, thiamin, and riboflavin. That’s only slightly worse than eating a PowerBar and it tastes a hell of a lot better.

    Used to buy this coffee cake at a Costco in San Antonio – DELICIOUS – but haven’t seen it now for long time. Would love the recipe too if available!

    I found these cakes at Costco in Kennewick Washington. Came back a month later and was told they weren’t making them – a mothers day special!!!
    I live in Stockton California and would love to be able to purchase them here. Our store had never heard of them.
    These are so delicious that I would like to be able to get them locally. What are the chances of that being possible. Please do not stop making them and bring them to California.
    Would like to hear from you.
    Thank You.

    This recipe is seasonal and my favorite dessert. I would really like to have the recipe to make for family events and a late night snack. If you could please email me the recipe I would be extremely grateful! Thank you.

    thanks for posting the nutritionals
    It really is an amazing cake [and I’m a good baker myself]
    They stopped making it for a bit at my store too Gerrie but today it was back :)

    As for the amount that’s worthwhile – I can’t imagine eating a 1/12th slice – it’s a BIG cake – so the nutritionals are probably not that different than any other cake for the amount you would actually eat – the label says the cake is 42 ounces . . .

    I TRIED TO BUY SOME MORE OF THAT DELICIOUS COFFEE CAKE AND THEY HAVE QUIT MAKING IT IN OUR BOISE, IDAHO STORE. VERY DISAPPOINTING. WILL YOU PLEASE SEND ME THE RECIPE??? MY HUSBAND IS NOT WELL AND HE REALLY ENJOYED IT. WE WOULD SOMETIMES BUY 3 AT A TIME. CALORIES ARE NOT AN ISSUE. I WANT HIM TO HAVE WHATEVER HE WANTS TO EAT AT THIS POINT IN HIS LIFE. HE IS 72 YEARS OLD.

    THANK YOU

    400 calories? Geez, I don’t doubt that it’s great, but that would make for an extra forty minutes on the elliptical trainer for one single slice…
