Sweet and Spicy, delicious Maple Gingerbread Coffee Cake. The perfect coffee cake breakfast with a mug of coffee or cup of tea.
I love coffee. Sooooo much. I also really like tea a lot as well.
My love of both started when I was pretty young. My mother sat down for a cup of tea each morning, and evening and often in between. On the other hand, my grandma sat down with a cup of coffee all day, everyday.
Both always allowed me a sip or two and sometimes even made me my own cup of whatever they were drinking. Often it accompanied fresh cookies, a slice of pie or a piece of cake.
So what better of way to enjoy a cup of tea than with a slice of Maple Gingerbread Coffee Cake? (or should that be Tea Cake?) *grin*
When it gets cold outside, I tend to turn to coffee or tea more often to warm me up. I drink both pretty regularly but still adore something baked fresh when the weather turns colder.
When the wind is whipping, temperature dropping, that’s when I’m drinking a lot of hot beverages and I assure you I enjoy it tremendously more with a sweet piece of coffee cake, more importantly with a slice of this Maple Gingerbread Coffee Cake too!
They pair perfectly together.
The busy holiday season is upon us, and I’m in the kitchen every single day baking and cooking for friends, family and neighbors.
Since the season is so hectic, I love to take a little “me” time to sit down and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and whatever happens to be on my baking agenda for the day.
I have made this Maple Gingerbread Coffee Cake about four times already this season.
Our whole family loves it, and for me it makes a nice little break with a cup of tea or coffee and some quiet reflection before getting caught back up in the hectic holiday again.
