Saturday mornings - blue ribbon coffee cake.

A while back when we had friends stay over, I baked a coffee cake for breakfast. That same day was when we were entering our food and items for open class in our county fair. I had a few extra pieces, so I decided last minute to enter it as well. The coffee caked ended up with a blue ribbon, so I think it is worth sharing. Especially since it comes together quickly, and reheated each morning, afternoon, coffee or tea break - will last for several days.

  1. This looks ever so delicious!
    I have been in such a baking mood lately. This, of course, will get 'worse' as Winter will be arriving soon. The best reason to fill the house with loveliness! Thank you for sharing!

  2. Hi Anna, it is way better then my photo is. I know the feeling - I'm so in the mood to start baking bread and making soup again. :)
