Come on in, would you like a cup of hot coffee?…How do you like your coffee, with cream, milk, or sugar? I know you must be so happy that I have coffee on…. Who doesn’t like a cup of hot coffee? It is so comforting and tastes so splendid.
Join me as we celebrate “National Coffee Day!” This day is a worldwide event observed annually on September 29th. People across the United States celebrate one of the most beloved morning beverages on National Coffee Day. It is a morning favorite, however, it is found being served throughout the day. Either hot, cold, black, or with additives such as cream, creamers, milk, sugar, flavored syrups, or ice.
In 1670, coffee seeds were smuggled out of the Middle East by Baba Budan, as he strapped seven coffee seeds onto his chest. The first plants grown from these smuggled seeds were planted in Mysore. It was then that coffee spread to Italy, to the rest of Europe, to Indonesia, and then to the Americas.
Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, Krispy Kreme on September 29--is giving you a free glazed doughnut and a free cup of coffee. Whole Foods Markets- nationwide have been celebrating National Coffee Day by giving customers a cup of coffee for just 25 cents! Even better, for every cup of coffee purchase you could help support a good cause. If you buy an Allegro Coffee for a quarter, Whole Foods will donate $1 to the Whole Planet Foundation.
Won’t it be marvelous to have a treat, like a piece of coffee cake to go with your coffee! There are many reasons to love coffee cake, but the fact that you can consume it for breakfast is tops on that list. Even if we have pancakes, French toast, and waffles to choose from in the morning, there's something really nice about having cake present at the breakfast table too. It just feels right. Coffee cake isn't only right for breakfast. It's invited any time there's coffee -- or even if there's just a coffee table present. For those of you who think coffee cake is not for you just because you don't want a cup of java, think again. Coffee cake is right for everyone -- even for the tea drinker like me. Please join me as I share with you my recipe this week for a delicious “Cinnamon Crumb Coffee Cake” Enjoy!
“Cinnamon Crumb Coffee Cake”
If you like crumb topping as much as cake, this recipe's for you. A thick layer of cinnamon-spiced crumb topping sits on top of this coffee cake that starts with a cake mix.
Serves: Makes 24 servings
2 cups flour
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
