Germany has given the world many blessings — sauerkraut, bratwurst, potato salad and pretzels, to name a few. Among those culinary delicacies, one can also add a delicious confection meant to accompany caffeine: coffee cake. Whether it’s accented by crunchy streusel or topped with fruit, accompanied by coffee or eaten by itself, coffee cake is a delightful treat worth downing first thing in the morning. And while some coffee cakes might appear quite elaborate, most are easy to whip up, making them the perfect baking project for home cooks of all stripes.

Why 1 A.M. Is The Best Time To See The Eiffel Tower

  Why 1 A.M. Is The Best Time To See The Eiffel Tower The Eiffel Tower is one of the most iconic structures in the world, so naturally it’s a must-see for visitors to Paris. In fact, an estimated 7 million people visit the Iron Lady each year. Tourists generally stop by the monument during the day, ascend to the top and admire the sunlit view from the Trocadéro across the Seine River. The tower is also a popular sight at sunset and during the evening when it’s all aglow. But if you’re looking for a particularly epic view of the Eiffel Tower, consider paying a visit at 1 a.m.

Before starting your coffee cake, you’ll want to decide what kind of base flavors you want to mix in. Traditional British coffee cakes are usually flavored with coffee, so you could always include instant coffee granules along with your spices and other dry ingredients, as demonstrated in the Coffee Lovers’ Coffee Cake above. You could also use flour made from coffee cherries for a cake that’s extra-caffeinated and also gluten-free. Buttermilk can also make for simply delicious (and tender!) coffee cake flavor profile, as can sourdough starter if you have some around. If you’re lucky enough to have a couple of Girl Scout cookie boxes left untouched, then you can also incorporate those delicious, crushed up morsels into your batter.

As seen here at her El Dorado album event in 2017, she isn't afraid to try unique touches with her hair, like this thin braid that covers an elastic. Of course, you could say the same for her performances, too. 2/4 SLIDES © Photo: Samir Hussein/Redferns.

Once you’ve decided on which base flavors and spices you want for your cake, you can decide whether you’d like some kind of complementary mix-in or filling. Of course, you can mix in nuts and dried fruits, but you can also spread streusel between two layers of batter for a delicious swirl of cinnamon and sugar tucked into every bite. If you’d like, make up a cheesecake-like layer to spread on top of the batter, and then top with your favorite fruit compote, as illustrated above in the Blueberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake. Pumpkin puree, when mixed with pumpkin pie spice, is another delicious add-in, especially in the fall or winter. If you decide to add mix-ins to your coffee cake, be sure to figure out whether you want the goodies evenly distributed throughout the batter, or if you want them focused in a central layer. Be sure to set a few of your mix-ins to the side, too, in case you want to sprinkle them across the top.

How airport hotels are upping their game to win over picky travelers

  How airport hotels are upping their game to win over picky travelers The reputation of airport hotels was in need of an overhaul. Now several hotels at air hubs are stepping up to the plate with time-saving tricks and aviation-themed experiences.Essential needs remain constant, but a growing number of amenities, such as lavish spas and farm-to-table dining, tell of an evolving trend.

Now that you’ve got your batter and mix-ins all ready, it’s time to decide how you want to finish off your cake. Streusel or fruit are common choices, of course, but you can also make a delicious cream or icing to finish off your cake, as shown in the recipes above. If you’re feeling up to it, you could also make a delectable, fruit-infused glaze to finish off your cake. Chocolate chips, nuts and seeds, or a drizzle of honey can also be used to top a cake in a simple but satisfying way. And of course, if you’re feeling like treating yourself, you could always top a hot piece of coffee cake with coffee ice cream for the perfect early morning (or afternoon) delight.

Step Four: Choose Your Presentation Style

Get the Recipes: Bundt Coffee Cake, Coffee Cupcakes, Orange-Walnut Coffee Cake

American coffee cakes are usually baked in single layers, but there’s no reason you have to resign yourself to a simple square baking pan. Try cooking up your coffee cake in a bundt pan, or creating mini loaves. If you prefer, coffee cupcakes might be more your speed. And of course, you could always turn your coffee cake into a layered creation, a style that’s more popular in European versions of the sweet treat. Make your coffee cake conform to whatever shape sparks joy for you.

How to Make an Overnight Coffee Cake

Baking first thing in the morning can be a chore, especially on a busy day. You can start your day off right, though, by putting together your coffee cake the night before so you can pop it in the oven first thing the next morning. Save your topping in a separate container—you’ll want to add those just before cooking the cake so that those ingredients don’t sink to the bottom overnight.

How to Make an Upside Down Coffee Cake

Get the Recipes: Cranberry Upside-Down Coffee Cake, Upside-Down Sour Cream Coffee Cake with Sherry-Roasted Pears

There’s no reason not to give coffee cakes the upside down treatment. For this variation, create a fruit, nut and spice layer at the bottom of your nonstick baking pan. Make sure to grease the pan for extra insurance that the fruit layer won’t stick. Add your coffee cake batter on top, bake as normal, and then allow to cool for a few minutes on a wire rack. To release the cake from the pan, run a knife around the edge of the cooking vessel and turn it upside down. The cake should come out, providing you with a delicious and decorative start to your day.
