Is anyone else preparing to host family or friends for the upcoming holidays? Well I have a little recipe that my grandmother shared with me years ago and now I want to share it with you. It is super yummy and just as easy to make. This little coffee cake is the perfect combination of cinnamon flavor and moist cake. Both young and old will enjoy this delightful little cake any time of day.
We are all big coffee drinkers in our family and a generous slice of this cake is the perfect accompaniment to the coffee of your choice. At home, we like to brew our own coffee but we also use products like mushroom coffee all the time too. We roast our own beans and even like to use coffee scales to make sure that we get the best flavored coffee every single time.
Coffee scales definitely make a difference to the taste of our coffee, but knowing which scales to buy was quite overwhelming as there are so many different makes and models. Fortunately, we managed to find an online guide that broke down everything we needed to know about coffee scales – you can click here for the full list of some of the most popular coffee scales out there.
