* A class of cakes intended to be served with coffee or for similar breaks and snacks.
Under this definition, a coffee cake doesn’t need to contain coffee. They are typically single layer cakes that may be square or rectangular like a stolen. Coffee cakes are typically flavored with cinnamon, nuts, and fruits. These cakes sometimes have a crumbly or crumb topping called Streusel and/or a light glaze drizzle. Blueberries are a fruit that may be added as an ingredient to this baked good, for example one might hear the phrase “blueberry coffee cake”. Some minor parallels to teacakes may be made, though teacakes are often smaller individual items served with tea.
