NATIONAL COFFEE CAKE DAY
National Coffee Cake Day is celebrated each year on April 7.
Coffee cake is a cake that is intended to be eaten while enjoying a cup of coffee, maybe for breakfast or during coffee break. One may choose to serve this cake to guests around their coffee table.
The coffee cake itself does not contain any coffee. They are usually single layer cakes made in square, rectangle or ring shaped pans. Coffee cakes are often flavored with cinnamon or other spices, seeds, nuts and fruits, such as blueberries or apples. Typically they have a streusel crumb topping or a glaze drizzle.
There are many different recipes for coffee cake that can be found in recipes books and online.
Enjoy some homemade coffee cake today and share it with some friends.
