Cinnamon Coffee Cake Loaf


Hands up, who loves coffee cake? Maybe an easier question would be, who doesn’t love coffee cake!  For me, there is nothing quite as homey and cozy as curling up with a steaming cup of coffee and a small…okay, okay…a big slice of homemade coffee cake.

What I really like about this coffee cake loaf, besides the amazing taste, is the manageable size. It’s not a huge cake that will be constantly tempting me for days on end. The loaf size is a bit smaller than a cake and once cooled (before adding icing drizzly), could easily be sliced in half and frozen for future coffee dates!
