So what’s the deal with coffeecake? Why is it called coffee cake when it doesn’t have coffee in it?
Back in the 17th century in Europe, and then in America, it became customary to enjoy a sweet type of bread with our coffee. These early coffee cakes were more of a bread with yeast. Modern coffee cakes are typically leavened with baking powder and baking soda and much quicker to make because you don’t need to wait for dough to rise. Around 1880, the term “coffee cake” became common, and written recipes from that time did sometimes include coffee in them.
Since then the coffee cake has evolved into any type of breakfast cake, typically with a crumbly topping, and sometimes filled with fruit, nuts, and spices. Imagine what cooks of the 17th century would think of this coffee cake made with pancake mix!
There are two main reasons to love coffee cakes:
- There are hundreds of ways to make coffee cake. No way is the wrong way – all coffee cakes are good.
- You’re eating cake for breakfast. Every kid’s dream come true, right?
