Classic Coffee Cake #FoodieExtravaganza

classic coffee cake #foodieextravaganza

This is my first time in months that I’m been able to post in this amazing party, and what a better way to do it than making a delicious coffee cake. This month we are celebrating coffee cake, and you know we have to have it at least once a week or maybe once a day.

I love coffee cakes and I made a different combination and different flavors but nothing beat the classic, and for me the simple the better. This coffee cake is just a mouth full of deliciousness in one bite and is super easy to make.

Many people think that coffee cake is a cake with a coffee base and it is really funny that my daughter want it a piece and ask me “does this cake has coffee? Well not it doesn’t and I think that it is name like that because it is usually eating with coffee and you know it was a great way to make people come and enjoy a cup of coffee with a delicious cake.

I want to say thank you to Lauren Mitchell from From Gate to Plate for bringing us a great party theme.

What is your favorite coffee cake? Tell I want to know…

It’s Foodie Extravaganza Day and this month’s theme is Coffee Cake with Caroline from Caroline’s Cooking is hosting What is Foodie Extravaganza? It’s when a group of bloggers get together and make a recipe using one main ingredient. Where do we get the ingredient? We look at The Nibble and pick something off of their list. Croissants are actually celebrated on January 30th, but it’s in January, so it’s fair game. You can check out our group Pinterest board for past recipes. If you’re a blogger, you can join along with us by requesting to join on our Facebook page. Now, on to the goodness being shared this month:

Classic Irish Soda Bread #TwelveLoaves

Classic Irish Soda Bread #TwelveLoaves

I’m so happy and exited to share with all of you this recipe because is the first time for me that I made anything like this bread. I have try soda bread before and I love it, it is so easy to make and delicious, the mixture of sweet and salty has been my favorite always and this bread is all of that.

And this month I’m truly happy because I was able to make it and thanks to our host Heather from All Roads Lead to the Kitchen for bringing the St. Patrick’s Day theme to our table.

Ok, like I said before it is truly an honor and a challenge all at the same time, I want it to make the classic soda bread but also add some of my personal touch, specially because I want for you to see that in any recipe we can add our touch and it will be very delicious.

Of course you have to respect the original recipe. I make a couple of changes that where super delicious, I add some lemon zest and change the raisins with currants, which are pretty similar but smaller.
