I’m not much of a baker, but this moist coffee cake, with a scrumptious crunchy topping, is foolproof and so delicious that it’s become my go-to when I need a homemade sweet treat to take to a friend’s house. The coffee in the recipe title isn’t an ingredient, it means it’s a cake to eat with a cup of coffee, or better yet with a glass of sweet wine, such as John Gehrig Golden Goose sweet apera from Rutherglen.
