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.
How do you like your coffee….cake? There are so many kinds out there. I feel like I keep doing a new one on here every so often, and I don’t know if I have a favorite. They are all different and tasty depending on what you are in the mood for. Or so I thought. Apparently my dad was not a big fan of this one because it is too moist. He likes his coffee cake to be a bit drier. But, luckily he has liked other ones I have made, so I will just save this one for us next time. 😉
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).
If you have time to do some prep work ahead, this cake is really easy to come together because you can bake it a couple days after you assemble it. Thus, fresh coffee cake! I like the bit of chocolate in the middle because it looks like it is smiling.
