Some questions about coffee cake:

Is Coffee Cake Healthy? No I am afraid not but a little slice will not do much harm?

Is Coffee Cake Vegan? This one isn’t as it contains eggs.

Does Coffee Cake Have Caffeine? This one does but why not try this recipe using decaf?

Your recipe sounds good, so I’m saving it to give a try at a future date. Thanks for sharing. I’m stopping by via Inspire Me Mondays. Come boogie with me on the dance floor if you’d like! 😉
