Simple Coffee Cake

Now coffee cake doesn’t actually have coffee in it, but it is ideal to eat while drinking a cup of your favorite joe! It must be the pairing of roasted coffee beans and sweet brown sugar cinnamon that not only fill your house with home warming smells but all the way down to your heart.

Whether you are passing by a coffee shop, there you will find many Greeks enjoying the sun and their frappes; whether shopping in a store or two, you are sure to find the workers sipping their frappes; or relaxing on the beach and savoring each sip.
