What is coffee cake?

Coffee cake is a moist, tender cake that is usually topped with some kind of streusel topping and served alongside coffee or tea at breakfast.

Martha Stewart has a lot of great recipes in the many books that she has put out and there are a few that I go back to time and again. One of them is for a New York Crumb Cake, a coffee cake that is loaded with deliciously spiced streusel topping. I am a big fan of coffee cakes in general (who doesn’t like streusel?) ...

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Coffee Cake

An oatmeal raisin cookie sounds like a simple thing – and it can be, judging by the number of totally mediocre oatmeal raisin cookies that are out there – but when you get a good one, it can be heavenly.

Raspberry Kiwi Coffee Cake

I like kiwifruit, but they’re not always at the top of my produce list when I go out shopping. They’re more of an afterthought, something I buy when they look good or if I want something colorful to add to a fruit salad. This is a shame because the berries have a delicious and unique flavor to them. They’re sweet-tart and hard to describe, but ... Read More »

Apples are often associated with fall, but apple trees are often ripe with fruit early into summer (depending on climate and weather conditions) and when you know someone with an apple tree who generous enough to save some for you to bake with, you can’t say no just because apples aren’t quite as “summery” as strawberries are.
