There is often confusion with the name 'coffee cake'. Some may expect that a coffee cake recipe will contain coffee or coffee flavourings however that is not a hundred percent correct. Coffee cake may refer to two very similar yet different recipes. The first definition refers to cake that is intended to be eaten with coffee or eaten during a 'coffee break' and does not necessarily contain coffee.The second definition refers to cakes which are often sponge cakes and does contain coffee in the ingredients.
This delicious recipe is for the former; cake that is intended to be eaten with coffee. It is a good recipe for lunch with friends or even just to use up extra sour cream.
