Easy Coffee Cake

One of my favorite things to make for a breakfast or brunch get-together is coffee cake! This recipe is quick, simple and tastes like it took hours to make. The coffee cake itself is so fluffy, buttery and cinnamon-y that everyone loves it.

Have you ever wondered why it’s called coffee cake but there’s no actual coffee in it? I remember thinking when I was younger that I wouldn’t like it- because I didn’t like the taste of coffee (who was I?) Until I realized that it’s just a magnificent cake that pairs perfectly with coffee.

The sweetness of the cake washes down perfectly with a bitter dark coffee. It’s a match made in heaven.
