If you make a coffee cake in advance but want fresh-from-the-oven flavor when you serve it to guests, try this trick. Wrap an unfrosted coffee cake in foil. Reheat at 350° for a few minutes or until warm.
For years my grandmother and I would have a contest to see whose mincemeat coffee cake was the best (our families voted). After years of losses, I modified my original recipe and finally won. I share my winning recipe with you.
