Who doesn’t enjoy a celebration of coffee cake? Someone proclaimed April 7 as the day for baking, eating and contemplating the history of this breakfast treat and we’re happy to join in. The coffee cake originated in Northern and Central Europe in the 17th century. When the German, Dutch and Scandinavians migrated to America they brought with them a fondness for eating sweet cakes with their coffee. We all enjoy a little bit of coffee cake with our coffee or another time of day.
