|I don't know who invented the coffee cake, but I am sure it was
created to give that something special to coffee breaks. It should
have been invented right here in America, but I think it would be of
more German origin.
We love our coffee and, frankly, I will use any excuse to eat cake, so
the two just naturally go together. BUT, I did the research and I was
right. It is of German origin and as with every good recipe, it evolved
over time. Coffee cake was brought to this country by immigrants
from Germany and Holland. Naturally, once they came to this country
with their rich traditions of baking and cooking, they improved on their
homeland recipes. You can read more about the history of Coffee
Cakes by following this link.
I know my family loved to bake coffee cakes. The crunchy nuggets of
rich sugary goodness....wow, makes my mouth water! Excuse me, I
have to go bake.
These vintage recipes are taken from handwritten recipes found in tin
boxes, journals, off scraps of paper, auctions, yardsales, and any
place else old recipes hide. If you have a family hand-me-down recipe,
please feel free to send it to me.
