  1. I am having a hard time finding SL Butter Streusel Coffee Cake in grocery stores lately. Are you still making and distributing this product?? It has been my favorite since childhood and I am hoping there is a way I can still buy it! I’ll buy direct from the company if necessary! Could you please let me know which stores are still carying it? I’ve asked my local grocery store to order it, and they say it is not available anymore.

  2. I remember growing up and buying apple Danishes from saralee just wondering if that’s still available anywhere in Toronto,Canada . Or if you have stopped making them . Thanks I enjoy the pound cake but the Danishes was my favorite

  3. Hi Ronnie, thanks for the question. Unfortunately, the Sara Lee Individually Wrapped Danishes are not available in Toronto.

  4. hi i lost the directions for the frozen apple pie with the topping in a separate bag could you send those directions please? thank you

  5. Hi, Steve – Here are the directions for Sara Lee Oven Fresh Dutch Apple Pie:

    Important: Store in freezer until ready to bake. Microwaving not recommended.

    1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
    2. Remove frozen pie from carton; remove overwrap.
    3. With fork, break up streusel topping and spread evenly over pie.
    4. Place frozen pie on baking sheet on center rack of oven.
    5. Bake pie at 400 F 60-65 minutes until crimped edges are golden brown. (Ovens vary. Adjust time and temperature as necessary.) Baking tip: check pie after 45 minutes. If necessary, cover edges of crust with aluminum foil to avoid excess browning. Do not cover center of pie.
    6. Remove baked pie from oven while it’s still on the baking sheet. Caution: never handle pie by the edges! Filling is hot.
    7. Cool pie on baking sheet before cutting and serving: 45 minutes for warm pie, 2 hours for cool pie. Covered, baked pie portions will keep fresh 2 days at room temperature or 4 days if refrigerated.

  9. Hi, Ronnie! We’re sorry but Sara Lee Individually Wrapped Apple Danishes are not available in Canada at this time.

  10. Hello Sara Lee….

    I finally found a location where you sell the Pecan Coffee Cake. But it’s 20 miles away and I live in the San Bernadino area, CA.(no storage of stores). Why is this not sold in major grocery stores? I grew up with this awesome dessert.

  12. Please help! My friend and I are “hooked” on Sara Lee Butter Streusel (she’s Austrian!) and have been enjoying it for years. However, we cannot find it anywhere! We’ve searched our usual stores in Massachusetts and even in Florida (east coast), but no luck. Are you still making/selling it? Heaven forbid the answer is no! Also, if it can be ordered directly from somewhere, please provide that information. Thanks!

  14. In and around eastern San Diego (California) County, the Butter Streusel Coffee Cake is no where to be found. I look at your product locator, go to those stores and nothing. Pretty frustrating as this is my fave. Are you guys phasing our the product?

  18. Hello!

    Danish Dutch Apple Cake

    Only the first two ingredients are mentioned in the Directions. What about the other 5 ingredients?!

  19. Hi Kurt! The last 5 ingredients get mixed with the apple pie filling. Sorry that wasn’t clear! Thanks for asking.

  20. Butter streusel coffee cake is so good! How can I get it in San diego California? Can I buy a gross amount from the company? Need this cake!!! Tried the product locator nothing within 50 miles for the cake…please help!

  22. Can’t find it anywhere in New England or Upstate NY, help! It’s so delicious I’d buy a case and keep them in the deep freeze (well that might last a month at best) anyone found a store still selling them?

  23. I have been looking for this favorite of mine for over a year, how can I get better streusel coffee cake? It is nowhere to be found. Did you stop making it?

  24. We have been searching for the butter streusel coffee cake and can not find it anywhere. It has been a family tradition for over 30 years for all Holiday gatherings. Have you stopped distributing it? Where can we find it near San Diego?

  25. Hi Lori,

    What a great family tradition! We still distribute Butter Streusel Coffee Cake. Please give our Consumer Affairs team a call at 1-800-323-7117 and they can check availability near you. Thanks!

  26. i tried using your product locator, nothing within fifty miles. Then tried calling consumer affairs. they have no one in my area that has ordered in the last thirty days- I live in Los Angeles. Where exactly is this distributed? The rep assured me it is still being made but it does not seem that anyone sells it anymore.

  27. Hi Patricia,

If the product is currently unavailable near you, the best way to get it in your area is to speak with your local store manager about stocking the product.

  29. Really too bad that you can’t find the butter strusel coffee cake anywhere around LA or Orange County CA…you can get the Pecan flavor though. If you’re desperate enough you can order from Amazon. For $80.00 ship included you can get 8 of them in about 30-40 days. There has to be a better way. It shouldn’t be this hard to get a product they still make?
    I will say the Sara Lee Website locator is pretty accurate. Is there a way to order it from another source?
    Thank you in advance for your response.

  30. Hi Susan, unfortunately we are unable to ship our frozen dessert products. Our suggestion is to talk to your local grocery store managers about stocking the product. That’s the best way to get it in your local stores. Thanks!

  31. …..I have been looking for the Butter Streusel Coffee Cake for over 10 years in the New England area. I had no Idea others are experiencing the same as I assumed you stopped making it. I decided to google the recipe and stumbled on this site. I will ask my local grocery store to order.

  32. Yeah, for some reason over the last 5 years, every single place I used to buy these coffee cakes at stopped selling them. After being promised by several store managers to stock them with no results, I finally gave up. Such a frustrating endeavor. I just ordered a case off of amazon for $75 and it takes 3-5 weeks to ship, from Sara Lee (WTF Sara Lee!?) Now I wait.

  33. Hello Michael, we’re sorry you’re having trouble locating this product, but we’re glad you found it online. For any product questions, please contact our Consumer Affairs team at 1-800-323-7117 for help. Thank you.
