Sunday Brunch: Spiced Coffee Cake Recipe

Earlier this summer, I got together with some old work colleagues for a Sunday Brunch!  It was great to see everyone and try out everyone’s favorite breakfast recipes!  I decided to make a spiced coffee cake!  I created it by adapting my carrot cake recipe.  I took the basics of the old recipe I made before, took out the carrots, baked it in a different type of pan, and sprinkled powdered sugar on top instead of icing it with cream cheese icing like I did before.  It is so nice to be able to change these couple little things and come up with a whole new cake!
