I love baking a good coffee cake on the weekends, especially when it's cold outside. The smell of cinnamon baking in the house is wonderful! This 9x9 breakfast cake is a favorite in our family. I have combined some of the recipes I have tried over the years to get to this cake! It's not complicated and you can add nuts or leave them out of the topping. I have added 1/8 cup cinnamon chips to the batter as well- it's just a good standby! Enjoy!
