The King of Coffee Cakes

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by sugarpea

The beer in this batter makes for a deeply-colored, moist and rich coffee cake. Baked in a Bundt pan and dusted with powdered sugar, it makes a pretty presentation.

Very Good---Easy --I used cocoa powder to dust my bundt pan--yum. This one is a keeper. Next time I will try chopped dates as someone suggested. Thank You for another. Bill K.
