I remember the first time I tried coffee cake. I had gone shopping with my aunt for my birthday. You see, every year she would take us shopping to buy a couple of outfits or maybe a toy that we really wanted. She wanted to make it special for us, so instead of bringing us a gift, she would pick us up, and take us out shopping. We would try on different things, laugh like crazy, run errands and get something to eat. It was always a fun time hanging out with her and my cousins.
Well, one day after a long afternoon of shopping, we decided to get a snack. We had already enjoyed lunch a while ago but were getting a big hungry. So, we drove over to a little café where she ordered coffee for herself and hot chocolate for my cousins and me. Then she ordered a double batch of coffee cake. I had no idea what that was, but I was interested- especially because she ordered a double batch! Well, turns out this was the best thing ever. It was full of cinnamon sugar goodness and loaded with lots of creamy cheesecake like filling.
