Is coffee cake just for breakfast or brunch?

I think the answer to that is a pretty firm ‘no’. You can eat it for dessert or for a snack. I know that’s what I do.

Heck, you’re an adult (yes?), you can also eat it for lunch or dinner. Yes, I’ve don’t that too. Don’t tell my kids.

I didn’t even drink coffee with it. But, it did go well with my cup of tea. 😉

Let’s make a coffee cake!

Make your batter: Be sure your butter is softened, and you don’t over mix your batter. Also, if you don’t have plain Greek yogurt, you can replace it with sour cream.

Spread it evenly into the prepared 9 inch baking pan. You can use a round pan or square. Just be sure to grease it well.

Make your streusel topping: Mix the dry ingredients first. Then, add in your melted butter. Take a fork and keep mixing until large moist crumbs form. This should take you just a few minutes.

Sprinkle on top on the batter and bake.

Let it cool a bit, then, make your icing. Drizzle, drizzle and drizzle, some more.

It’s best served warm-
