Maple Walnut Spice Coffee Cake w/Maple Icing

Fall is absolutely my most favorite season. Besides pumpkin, my other favorite fall flavors are maple and spices - especially cinnamon. This time of year, I also use pumpkin pie spice in my baking. If you don't have pumpkin pie spice then go ahead and use cinnamon with nutmeg or allspice if you've got it. This time I used pure maple syrup in the icing, folks. However, since real maple syrup is a little pricey, I used maple extract in the cake. And really, there's nothing stopping you from drizzling extra maple syrup on top of this coffee cake!

Good Morning Carrot Coffee Cake w/Cream Cheese Icing

This coffee cake is based on the Morning Glory muffins, which have lots of healthy least that's what I tell myself. Yes, the ingredients list is long. But, honestly, the bulk of the prep work is shredding the carrot and the apple and mashing the banana. Some may say, "This is really a carrot cake posing as a coffee cake." And? ☺

Spiced Chai Latte Coffee Cake w/Honey Icing

Fall is my favorite time of year and with it comes pumpkin spice lattes and warm chai tea in the cool afternoons...with a generous slice of coffee cake. Coffee cakes are also good for the BFD menu, or breakfast for dinner. For this coffee cake, I used the Oregon Chai Tea Latte Mix. Whichever brand you use, make sure that it's already concentrated, or you'll have to do it yourself. In this case, I reduced the amount of water by half.

Pineapple Coffee Cake w/Macadamia Coconut Topping and Orange Icing

If I had called this coffee cake the Hawaiian Coffee Cake, then that would have sounded like such a cliche. I mean really just because it has pineapple, macadamia nuts, and coconut doesn't necessarily make it Hawaiian, does it? And besides, it's not like Hawaiian Coffee Cake is any easier to say than Pineapple Coffee Cake with Macadamia Coconut Topping and Orange Icing. ☺
