Gingerbread Coffee Cake
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
My husband loves gingerbread but I don't make cookies anymore. This coffee cake satisfied him and was so easy to make.
This was a nice change from the usual coffee cakes I make. I love ginger so upped the ground ginger by half a teaspoon. It turned out a little dry but I think that was the fault of my oven and not the recipe. I did use the drizzled icing along with the chopped crystallized ginger, yum!
This recipe is an absolute win for me. The topping is crisp and the cake is moist and full of spices. We decided to serve it topped with whipped cream instead of using the drizzled glaze.It comes together quickly, too, and bakes in less than half an hour, so it could be ready in time for drop-in holiday guests, or for a snow-day snack.
