Sunday Morning Quick Coffee Cake
Good morning! Ah, it’s Sunday morning and time for a coffee cake. There’s nothing like it early in the morning with a cup of steaming coffee. I love the aroma coming from the oven, filled with a great cinnamon fragrance. It makes the house smell like a bakery…
This is a recipe of Mom’s; it’s moist, buttery and filled with plenty of good things! She added 1 cup of sugar, I add ¾ cup; she had a great sweet tooth and loved her sweets. It also combines sour cream and chopped nuts, with a nice flavorful streusel on top.
This coffee cake is very good and quite easy to make; quick like she says! Mix it together; pop it in the oven and Voila! You are ready to enjoy it hot out of the oven, warm or room temperature. And it even freezes well if you care to do so. I like it right out of the oven myself!
So get to baking your coffee cake and brew up your coffee!
