Ever wonder why coffee cake is called coffee cake since there isn’t coffee in the cake?
A coffee cake is a single layer cake typically served with coffee (obviously) and is often served on the coffee table while entertaining guests. A coffee cake usually has some kind of streusel topping.
I guess you can say this cake pairs nicely with your morning coffee. Or it is just a good excuse to eat cake in the morning.
