Recipe Of The Day: Coffee Cake

Susie Cushner

Cakes make people happy. They're always there to celebrate a special occasion -- and they make those events even better. A good layer cake makes birthdays feel more important. And velvet cakes make you feel like you're just doing something right. We're fans of these special cakes, but we also really like our everyday coffee cake recipes.

You don't need a special occasion for an excuse to make a good coffee cake recipe. This coffee cake recipe is spiked with espresso and topped with an espresso glaze, giving you an extra jolt of caffeine to help you get through the ordinary day. (The pecan crumble topping is pretty great too.)
