A Big Thanks to everyone who supported me in my journey of blogging and many thanks to all my blogger friends for all the encouragement with your valuable suggestion.



Celebration is not complete without sweets & treats. So here is a sweet treat ‘Coffee Cake’ for this wonderful fest.

Coffee Cake is a simple sweet moist rich cake usually made with nuts and spices. This Coffee cake with its rich crumble topping tastes great as a morning treat with a cup of coffee.
