READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by CoffeeB

This is not your typical coffee cake recipe. A double treat in using coffee in the mix.

Top Review by Sydney Mike

Because of the coffee ingredient, I didn't make this for here at home for rather for my other half to take to work & share, & from the reports I got several hours ago, it was a big hit (& devoured in no time at all by the 8 people in the office) ~ The great combo of coffee, coconut & cinnamon was mentioned several times, & I did take KITTENCAL's tip & included some cinnamon in the cake batter! And apparently it's a recipe that I'll be making again from time to time! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Zaar Stars recipe tag]
