Coffee Cake/Tea Time Cake

What more you can ask when you have a slice of freshly baked coffee cake and a steaming cup of coffee ;). This cake has a rich, buttery flavor and soft moist texture.

Coffee cakes are the one for everyday although called a “coffee cake” it does not usually contain coffee. Though the name more often refers as these types of cakes are usually eaten with coffee or tea. I am sure that you will love the slightly crunchy texture when baked and its grainy texture contrast nicely with soft and moist cake.

  1. I Love Coffee / Tea Time Cakes. They are easy to bake. And if you get the proportions correct, it will be hogged away in couple of minutes.
    Have you tried Rava Cake or Sweet Potatoe Cake. Try them, they are sinfully delicious. Bread Pudding is another English type of Tea Time Snack.
