Quick and Easy Coffee Cake

Last weekend, my hubby made this coffee cake for our breakfast. Not only did he whip this up in no time, but all five of us loved it and deemed it “one of the best coffee cakes ever”. It was moist, fluffy, and had a slight butter taste. The cinnamon sugar topping brought this to a whole new level, and we were all glad to have enough leftover for the next day too.

This budget friendly cake would be perfect with your morning coffee, brunch with friends, when company comes into town, or just as a yummy breakfast!
