Blueberry Grand Marnier Coffee Cake

Serious Eats Sydney Oland Post a comment

Let's face it—brunch is a meal designed to further the consumption of alcohol. And even if a simple coffee cake and a pot of coffee is all you have to offer, then by all means flavor it with a few drops of booze. More

Moravian Sugar Cake is a traditional Easter breakfast, though fluffy and sweet coffee cake is always in season. The secret to this warm, yeasty bread's lightness is the addition of mashed potatoes. More

Gluten-Free Tuesday: Mini-Coffee Cakes

Serious Eats Elizabeth Barbone 6 comments

Those little cellophane-wrapped Drake's cakes were always my favorite before going gluten-free.

While most coffee cakes are just nice things to nosh on between gulps of coffee, this one actually has coffee in it. More
