As much as I love a good dessert, I can usually take it or leave it at the end of a meal. Another glass of wine is dessert for me! But breakfast is an entirely different matter. First thing in the morning, I need something sweet with my coffee. Until I’ve satiated this craving, I can’t even look at eggs, bacon, or anything savory. Usually toast and jam does the trick, but sometimes I get a hankering for something homemade…a muffin, a scone, or best of all, a warm piece of coffee cake.
There’s nothing quite like a cinnamon-scented coffee cake (with plenty of crumbly topping) to get your morning off to a good start. Preferably one with blueberries and walnuts. With some sour cream to give it tang. And maybe a little lemon zest for good measure. (Well that’s at least how I like it!)
