What Is Coffee Cake?

It’s commonly a damp, delicate cake that is frequently beaten with streusel besting and served close by espresso or tea at breakfast. They stand separated from different cakes on account of their streusel beating and not for the most part iced. The name originates from the way that it is presented with espresso, not on the grounds that it has espresso in it.
