Easy homemade coffee cake recipes

Can you say comfort food?  I don’t know about you, but I LOVE the smell of anything cinnamon baking in the oven.  It’s such a warm, homey smell.  Your home will be filled with that very aroma with today’s recipe.  This is a traditional coffee cake recipe that Mom always made when I was growing up.  I just made some over the weekend and thought I would share.  It is all made from scratch, but it is quick and very simple to make!       ***Tip #1:  I used all organic ingredients, and because shortening is a trans fat that is bad for you, I personally used a different kind of shortening called “Spectrum Organic All Vegetable Shortening”.  It doesn’t affect the taste of the cake.   Homemade Streusel … Continue Reading
