A Delicious Spring Coffee Cake Recipe


Coffee cake is a classic and traditional cake that is paired or flavored with coffee. Personally, I think the best coffee cake is one that made with coffee and paired with it too! I like to add in a little espresso and then of course, enjoy a slice with the perfect cup of coffee. I named this recipe Spring Coffee Cake because I think it’s perfect for an afternoon tea party or outdoor brunch! It’s moist and crumbly just like coffee cake should be and very flavorful with the espresso we added to the recipe. We also used sour cream, which is traditional to American coffee cake, to keep it moist and give it a little bit of a tart flavor. It feels very spring with the light coffee glaze and then garnished with flowers. If you like coffee cakes, try this coffee cake recipe and let me know your thoughts!!
