This coffeecake has nutmeg in it making it taste like a donut. And it can count as a breakfast, mid-afternoon snack, or even a first dinner. It calls for strawberry jam, and so I whipped up my favorite strawberry freezer jam with a vanilla bean for good measure. And, I have to say, that this stuff was super hard to photograph… solely because I wanted to eat it so badly! I gobbled up two slices in a row, and loved every second.
And did you know, this is my first yeast coffeecake! I want to experiment with more now! It has minimal rise time and maximum deliciousness. I love that it has coconut in the crumb topping, too. It adds just a bit more tasty texture. So give it a whirl! Use your favorite jam, preserves, jelly all up in this. I have a feeling they’d all be dreamy. In my heart I’d like to put chocolate chips in it… but what does my heart know?
