Cinnamon Coffee Cake

Cinnamon Coffee Cake

Brunch is a passion of mine. I love it for it’s versatility, but also because it’s a wonderful way to get friends or family together for some casual conversation and great food. Admittedly, this is usually accompanied by a football game in the fall, but a coffee cake with a side of espresso is perfect any time of year for catching up.
