Coffee Cake

Coffee Cake is a funny thing to me. It's a cake with no coffee? Doesn't really make sense to me. I grew up with English coffee cake which was a cake made with coffee and an icing with coffee. That sounds right to me.
Even though the name doesn't make sense, eating this sure does!
I decided to make American style coffee cake. This recipe is great. The cake is moist and dense but fluffy too. The crumble is amazing. I absolutely love the edges where the crumble is hard and chewy!
Perfect for weekend breakfast, with coffee, or an afternoon snack with a cup of tea!
 This recipe has lots of buttery sugary goodness on top.
I could barely control myself from not eating half of this mixture right then. But I controlled myself for the good of the other people who would be eating this later on. How nice am I ? 😉
