Classic Coffee Cake

I have recently found out that my daughter is allergic to eggs and peanuts, so in addition to epi-pens and general paranoia about everything she will come in contact with, I also have to avoid eggs and peanuts, since I am nursing.

Giving up peanuts is not that hard for me, but eggs is devastating. What has eggs? All the delicious things: most cookies, cakes, brownies, pancakes, waffles, custards, breaded items like fried chicken, meatballs, dumplings, premium ice creams, fresh pasta, mayo and much much more.

So, it is with a heavy heart, I write about the last recipe I made before we found out. It is the best coffee cake I've ever had. The recipe is from and is excellent. The cake is so moist and tender; the strudel topping was large and ample (after all, it is the best part!). I didn't even bother with the icing drizzle. It was extra work and the cake does not need it.

I made it for my last Babies and Breakfast playdate; so that's two things I miss – eggs and my mommy friends.
