Recipe: Cozy, Comfy, Non-Crumbly Coffee Cake

This is one of my favorites because a) it reminds me of home and b) my husband loves it. Oh! And c) it isn't chocolate so I feel diverse in my culinary skills. (stop laughing)

My mom made this growing up and it is the best. Really. It is. Even if you don't life coffee, that's okay! You will still love this. It's more of a suggestion like, "Hey! Perhaps you should sip coffee while you partake in such a delectable treat! Whaddya say?"

Adam and I disagree on how to classify this. I say definitely, positively, absolutely it's a breakfast food! Helloooooo, COFFEE in the title?! DEFINITELY breakfast-worthy!

He says (with an eye roll), "SARA. It's a dessert. Get over it."

Agree to disagree?

Josh--you should! It's great! But...um, yeah, my recipes aren't exactly beach friendly. SHOCKER. haha. But we are trying to eat more superfoods! I am serious. It is hilarious..last night we had edamame. We keep it classy. (hi-YA!)

Kim--You always know just what to say. ;) (AND p.s. I totally saw him sneak some this morning. ...of course, we also had it last night after dinner...but STILL!)
