I talk a lot about making things for the kids. In fact, yesterday I shared a great breakfast recipe that the kids loved! But rarely do I make something specifically for the hubs & I. Rarely do we add a little something to our morning coffee. But sometimes I just crave a little something – most of the time on the weekends. Once in a blue moon I can get him out the door before coffee to pick up some donuts for me. But usually if I want something first thing in the morning it has to be something I have made ahead of time. Like this Snickerdoodle Coffee Cake that I whipped up for this past weekend. We had a ton of things we needed to knock out early Saturday so I knew leisure time would be scarce. But I didn’t want to feel like I was rushing through my weekend. Having this super simple coffee cake before our weekend really got rolling was a great way to feel like we were having a relaxing weekend even though that wasn’t the case.
This moist & delicious Snickerdoodle Coffee Cake is so easy to make with one secret ingredient.
Packed with great cinnamon flavor, perfect for coffee time
Really – using the pancake mix made this so light & moist. YUM! I might make this an every weekend occurrence.
