Coffee cake is such a great dessert for parties. I’m guessing that you’ve probably got most, if not all, of the ingredients already in your cupboard. And the buttermilk adds a rich flavor and keeps the cake moist.

 

What Makes a Coffee Cake a Coffee Cake?

Most cakes have a frosting or icing on top, such as a pound cake or birthday cake. But, coffee cake usually has a streusel type crumbled mixture on the top. Icing can also be drizzled across the streusel.

This cinnamon coffee cake recipe includes nutmeg which always reminds me of fall. It’s a delicious side treat to a pumpkin latte or a nice steaming cup of coffee.

And let me tell you, this is a super moist recipe. It wasn’t too heavy or too dense. It’s a lighter version of the typical crumb coffee cake recipe.
