They are typically single layer cakes that may be square or rectangular such as stollen or loaf-shaped cakes, or they may be ring shaped. Coffee cakes are often flavoured with cinnamon or other spices, seeds, nuts and fruits – the perfect complement to your beverage. These cakes sometimes have a crumbly or crumb topping called streusel and/or a light glaze drizzle and this book highlights the very best. From light and crumbly Cookies & Biscuits to sumptuous Bars & Slices, Pastries, Buns & Rolls; not forgetting the all important Cakes & Loaves. Your cup of coffee need never be unaccompanied again.
