Patty Kovacs’ coffee cake
If you’re looking for something festive to make for a holiday party, look no further than this cinnamon coffee cake. The combination of a soft cake mixed with
a swirl of moist cinnamon filling, a crunchy mixture of cinnamon sugar and nuts on the top, this sweet cinnamon cake has an essence of Christmas and is perfect for the holiday season. Even small portions of this festive cake are satisfying and filling.
College counselor Patty Kovacs first learned this recipe from her mother, but in the end it was her own touch that made it perfect.
“It is an adaptation of my mother’s recipe, that she gave to me twice and I realized when I was making it, after a number of years, I said, ‘Wait a minute, there’s something missing: eggs!’ So I adapted my mom’s recipe,” Ms. Kovacs said, laughing.
