Coffee cake

Did you know that coffee cake doesn’t have any coffee in the recipe? Bizarre I know. It’s the classic breakfast recipe that is paired with a hot cup of jo and you don’t want to miss out on it. In fact I’m pretty sure that I could eat one of these slices every morning for the rest of my life just because its moist and bursting with flavor. The ground cinnamon in this recipe is also just screaming fall recipe to me.

I mean just look at that topping!

It’s National Coffee Month and I thought there is no better way to celebrate it by having a big slice of coffee cake with a big honking cup of coffee with cream. This was my first attempt to making a coffee cake in my 30 years of life. Take that back it was my second go at it because my first go at making this into muffins just didn’t work out. 

Coffee cake

Some things are just meant to stay in cake form and this is one of them.

One thing about coffee cake is you can have it for breakfast or sneak in a piece for lunch or dinner. If you are my toddler daughter she gets a piece right before bed thanks to her dad.
