1. It was mother's day and I thought a cake was called for. I landed on coffee cake because I was serving it in the morning (and frosting before noon just seems a little much sometimes. Not that I've never eaten frosting before noon, don't get me wrong).
2. I had coffee on the brain as this week I am having a little coffee fast in preparation for my sister's wedding this Sunday. You see, I'm doing the whole teeth whitening thing and the whitening strips box told me to avoid black coffee and red wine while using the product as my teeth will be more sensitive to stains.
After reading this I cried a little.
Ok, not really. But I drink coffee every day so I was a little bummed.
And then I could have coffee AND not stain my teeth.
Can you tell I've given this WAAAAAAY more thought than the whole thing deserves? I'm a weirdo.
The Best Coffee Cake. Ever. That's what this cake is called, literally, recipe found here. I didn't make any changes to the original recipe and it came out amazing so I don't suggest it.
Unless you just want to.
It's your life to live. Do what you've got to do. ;)
