Lots of layers and fluffy, buttery icing are good, but at heart, I’m a coffee cake kind of girl.
It’s more of an everyday kind of cake, not that I need cake every single day, but every now and then I get an urge for something sweet. I’m not much of an pre-packaged kind of sweets girl. Well, unless we’re talking chocolate. I’ll eat chocolate wrapped in just about anything, but when it comes to cookies or cakes, I generally don’t buy them in the store.
I bake them.
It’s amazing how cooking dinner can feel like I’ve been thrown in a work camp and made to do grueling physical labor, but baking a cake is actually kinda fun.
I think there’s some sort of malfunction in my brain.
This cake has cinnamon and sugar baked into the top, but I can imagine leaving off the cinnamon and sugar and piling on fresh strawberries dripping in juice.
This cake took me about 5 minutes to put together and bake time is only 20 minutes. It’s an easy, dense cake that stays fresh for a few days.
I got this recipe from another blogger though, so you’ll have to hop on over to Sarah’s Cucina Bella for the full recipe.
