I love to bake and try out new recipes like this one. I love this recipe, and I think you will, too.

There are different versions of the coffee cake. Most of these versions don't include coffee but a few do. The reason they named it the coffee cake is because it was a simple unfrosted cake that was eaten with coffee. Coffee cake is served at informal affairs while fancy cakes are for formal affairs.

What is interesting is that my mother has made this coffee cake so many times that I had to make it myself. While it did come out great, it didn't taste like my mom's. But my parents and I loved it. The coffee cake was gone in two days.

Does this recipe look yummy?

      The cake pan that is used for this recipe is great because you can turn it over and it is easier to get the cake out. It is also easier to cut. This is a coffee cake but the name is called Coffee Ring maybe because it is round like a ring. I hope this helps.
