Best Coffee Cake Recipe Recipe

As much as I want to make a Honey Cake or Golden Key Cake, I cannot stand the heat in the kitchen. So, I've been going to Plum Pies and coffee cakes for dessert, for the last few days. How normal is it, having tried numerous cake recipes, during the past few years, not to have had a favorite one? This cake changed things around.

If you take a bite, your teeth will first sink through a chewy, sweet crunch, which is attained from the caramelized brown sugar. Take in a bit more, and you will see soft swirls of brown sugar on the inside, adding more great taste. The combination of a rich, crusty shell, with a soft, flavorful body, makes this cake worthy of its title.

In a separate bowl, combine flour together with sugar.
In small parts, add flour mixture into the liquid mixture. Stir to combine the mixture well together.
In a separate bowl, combine brown sugar with cinnamon and instant coffee.

Pour the remaining batter into the baking pan and sprinkle it with the remaining brown sugar. Pour melted margarine over the top of the cake.
