With the kids back in school, now may be the perfect time to reconnect with old friends. As we all know, friends are such an important part of our lives. Maintaining those friendships will be a source of joy and comfort throughout our lives. A spur-of-the-moment cup of coffee may not happen often and it may take some effort to get together – but it will be worth it. To show your friendship commitment, treat your friends to a special homemade coffee cake.
As a general rule, coffee cakes are fairly easy to prepare. I love a when a coffee cake has a creamy component. If you’re still hanging on to summer, the Peach Custard Coffee Cake is delicious. The creamy part of this recipe is made with sour cream mixed with eggs and flour. The cake recipe is made with Martha White® Self-Rising Flour which saves you time by eliminating the need to measure out baking powder, baking soda and salt. As for the peaches – you can use fresh or frozen!
If you’re ready to leave summer behind and move into the fall or if you just want to a shortcut to home baking, the Songbird Sweet Potato Skillet recipe is the perfect option. Begin with a Martha White® Sweet Potato Muffin Mix. Change the ingredients a bit by using buttermilk and butter. Pour into a cast iron skillet or baking pan. Swirl in the cream cheese filling and sprinkle with streusel topping. The outcome is fabulous! A piece of this coffee cake, a cup of coffee and a good friend is all you need!
