10 Best Coffee Cake Recipes

A handy list of some of the best Coffee Cake recipes around.

If there’s one thing better than sitting down to a nice cup of coffee, that has to be sitting down to a nice cup of coffee and a slice of coffee cake.

All of these cakes are coffee cakes in the sense that they go well with a  cup of coffee. There’s no actual coffee flavor in these cakes. In the same way that tea cake doesn’t usually have tea in the cake, but it accompanies a cup of tea.

A coffee cake is simply a style of cake usually characterized by a crumbly topping. Cream cheese also makes a regular appearance in coffee cake recipes and there is usually either a fruit or berry focus.

The term coffee cake particularly popular in the USA. Crumble cake, crumb cake and streusel cake are all terms used to describe the same style of cake but whatever you call them, coffee cakes are delicious.

You’re sure to find something to go with your cuppa from these great coffee cake recipes. Better go put that coffee on…
