Imagine waking up to this on a cool morning. Brew up a mug of coffee, tea or hot chocolate, and you’re ready to eat. This was actually made for a dinner party where the theme was ‘breakfast’. Breakfast for dinner. Let’s all just admit that breakfast for dinner is always a great idea. Why do you think people love going to Ihop for pancakes late at night? For this dinner party, everyone had to supply a traditional morning platter, and this is something that rides the line between bread and dessert. We sat down to an asparagus and potato frittata, roasted potatoes speckled with hearty turkey sausage and fresh watermelon and pineapple with cream. This coffee cake was a great way to end it all, but there’s no reason why it won’t be baked again for a future fall morning.
