This treat is so scrumptious and sweet it gives me an allergic reaction... in a good way. Flakey and sugary yet moist and buttery, Cinnamon Coffee Cake is a kitchen confection that will cure your sweet tooth and hit the spot in the morning. It is the perfect breakfast treat to show someone you care. It takes approximately an hour to create and is well worth the effort. This cake is best served while it's still hot with a cup of freshly brewed coffee... duh!
