National Coffee Cake Day is an annual American holiday dedicated to this wonderful dessert. A delicate cake with a seductive coffee flavor. What could be better?! Especially if you are a fan of coffee or chocolate. The holiday is celebrated on April 7.
The history of National Coffee Cake Day remains unknown. Researchers believe that coffee cake or cakes were invented in Europe (presumably in Austria) in the 17th century. As their creation had served many other famous desserts. The impetus for the appearance of coffee cake was the popular habit, to wash down desserts with coffee. Apparently, some skillful chef had the idea to combine two delicious products together. So we got a great cake with a distinctly coffee flavor and aroma.
There is no single correct recipe for coffee cake. You can add different nuts, use several kinds of cream, add berries or fruit. Coffee cake is not only a great dessert, but also a real field for experimentation for those who love cooking.
