Is there really anything better than having a nice leisurely breakfast with a cup of coffee and a slice of coffee cake? Or three slices of coffee cake if you’re like me and can’t stop after one! It’s really a great way to start your day.
While I really enjoy eating this cake for breakfast, it’s really an all-day kind of experience. Lately I’ve really been into creating food memories and moments. I think a great option would be to have a piece of coffee cake and a cup of coffee ready to serve to some friends on a random afternoon. With the weather being super chilly this fall, it’s a lovely way to spend a few hours with your friends and catch up on life during the busy holiday season by enjoying a Spice Islands Ground Saigon Cinnamon-spiked treat!
And what makes this coffee cake better than all the other ones out there is the combination of the streusel topping and the Spice Islands Ground Saigon Cinnamon. Saigon cinnamon is one of the most fragrant and sweet cinnamons out there, and it really steps it up above all other cinnamons. I make the streusel topping that is laced with this aromatic spice, and then use the streusel as a layer in the cake and then the topping. That way you get a double punch of cinnamon to complement your coffee!
