If you look at my posts this week you will see that they are all breakfast recipes. Breakfast, by far is my favorite meal of the day. I love coffee cakes and this lemon ginger coffee cake, is perfect for a quick breakfast.
I have mentioned that I get stuck on flavors. Right now it’s all about ginger. It is has been my favorite spice for the last couple of weeks; it seems like I can’t get enough of it. I love the combinations of citrus with ginger, I added to my smoothie that I posted last week that had orange, I have made lemon and ginger cookies.
I want to mention that this will be a short post today. I did something to my back this week. Sitting here at the computer is a hard thing to do for me.
I love this coffee cake so I wanted to make sure that it got posted this week. If you like the combination of ginger with citrus you are sure going to love this coffee cake. It’s a moist lemony coffee cake with a hint of ginger. Oh, of course, it has a yummy crumble too. Crumble is a must when you are baking a coffee cake, well at least in my book.
