"Coffee cake" is a bit of a misnomer; these sweet morsels don't contain coffee, they don't taste like coffee, and they don't necessarily need to be enjoyed with coffee either. When it comes down to it, coffee cake is just moist, streusel-y, fruity cake that gives people a reason to indulge in dessert for breakfast. And why shouldn't you? One slice of this will start your morning on a sweet note that'll keep you smiling all the way into the office or the classroom or wherever else it is you need to be.
