In Response to Re: WHAT'S FOR DESSERT TONIGHT?:
Really no coffee ! Coffee cakes get their name from what they are usually served with.They are a rich,less sweet cake,often made with sour cream and /or butter and have a streusel topping such as nuts,oats,sugar ,butter,flour and cinnamon.Or even just drizzled with a glaze.This is one of my favorite types of cake.

I know it is suprising with no coffee...
but what i do to enhance the coffee flavor is to but 1 Tablespoon of coffee with that glaze.
And maybe replace i with different fruits or berries like blueberries,strawberries....then add flavored juice or extract or syrup to the glaze that matches the fruit flavor!
