Coffee Cake

Weekends have special breakfast traditions around here. Each Sunday morning, we trek over to John’s parent’s house for a big family breakfast. We stop on the way and buy a box of donuts for the kids. Once we get there, John and I take over in the kitchen. Breakfast usually involves eggs and sausage or bacon (my father-in-law’s faves) along with lots of coffee and reading the newspapers. Saturday morning, however, is mine. John sleeps late and the children watch cartoons and play. I have time to pull out my favorite cook books and mull over new recipes. I can make a big mess in the kitchen and pull out appliances long hidden. Past Saturdays have featured crepes or funnel cakes or specialty pancakes & waffles. This morning, it was coffee cake.
