I am so excited to report that with this coffee cake baking behind me I have officially completed Goal #2 of my new years resolution, which was the reason I started this blog in the first place! I have now completed all recipes in my recipe box that I had never tried before!!
Which coffee cake won?
Well, first off, you may notice four coffee cakes on the table. I had a last minute addition. (Tune into tomorrow for that one.) It's a Modern Baker recipe. I wanted everyone to try it and enjoy it, but it wasn't as officially in the running.
Coffee Cake #1, the cake we usually make, did dismally with only 1/2 a vote. (Yes, my voters couldn't make up their minds and started doing 1/2 votes.)
Coffee Cake #2 received 5 votes and Coffee Cake #3 received 5 1/2 votes. Coffee cake #2 was the favorite classic coffee cake. It is quick and simple and tastes great. Coffee cake #3 tasted great too and was fun and different. In some ways it's unfair to compare the two. I'm calling it a draw. However, I'm sure my grandma up in heaven is enjoying that her Hungarian coffee cake took home top prize! A 1/2 a vote counts!
There is a fourth cake and it received 1 vote. It's not that it wasn't liked. It was just that it was less a traditional coffee cake. Check in tomorrow for more.
Want a little peak into my life- here's my kitchen in the midst of baking 4 coffee cakes. Seriously, this just doesn't capture the chaos.
