For as long as I can remember my godmother would drop off a homemade coffee cake for my family and I to enjoy on Christmas morning. It was her way to spread good cheer, although I don’t know how she managed it considering she had five children of her own. My family was always thrilled to see her drive up to the house and “surprise” us with one of her special cakes. This tradition, although in our respective homes, continues today. My sister and I still bake a coffee cake for Christmas every year and it doesn’t seem like the holidays until we enjoy a piece. Not only for the holidays, this dessert is perfect all year round and is a go-to item to celebrate any event, such as an office party, new baby, new home, cookout, brunch, the list could go on.
