These definitely give you a coffee flavor, but not only that, they were great blondies. I made these for my dad without the coffee and used extra vanilla instead. He said they were some of the best blondies he has had, so clearly the coffee part isn’t the only good part of the recipe.
Because you can never have too many coffee cake recipes….here is another one. I feel like each one can be so different. This one got my interest because you mix the “streusel” into part of the batter.
Let’s preface this with…the Chiplet could be here by now. Or maybe not. And by typing this, I have a weird deja vu feeling from when I wrote stuff like this about the Fudgelet’s arrival. If the Chiplet is here, I hope to give an update soon. If he hasn’t arrived yet or my update is slow, you can also check my Instagram/Twitter pages in case I update there first.
Now, onto the muffins!
Today is my Dad’s birthday! I have been treating him to desserts each month for a few years now, but unfortunately I have been slacking this past year. It’s been harder than I realized to send treats 1) when I’m a new mom, 2) when I don’t visit home very often now, and 3) when there are snow storms that delay treats you do send. So, I am truly sorry, Dad, and hope to do better this year. It has also been crazy how fast the months have gone by. I’ve been trying to set more of a routine for myself each week so that I can fit in my chores and tasks more easily. I had an old routine pre-Fudgelet, and now I need to make a new one. I’ll keep you posted on how it goes. 😉
It has been awhile since I’ve shared a new recipe for my dad. He’s been requesting his favorite chocolate chip cookies a bunch, as well as some other favorites. He asked for a coffee cake, and said I could make whatever I wanted. This cake is definitely “cake-like”. A bit fluffy, and a bit cinnamon-heavy (feel free to dial it back for your palate). He enjoyed it, as did K and I with the few pieces we couldn’t fit in the container we mailed (tragic, I know).
