The term ‘Coffee Cake’ gets misconstrued at times, many people assume it is called that because the cake must have an intense coffee flavour. However what it usually means is that this cake is usually served with or goes really well with a cup of coffee. Coffee cakes usually incorporate a layer or two of streusel, which is essentially a crumbly topping of flour, butter and sugar, at times with a few extra additions. The use of sour cream for this particular recipe, which is my all-time favourite one, makes it incredibly moist, tender, decadent and oh so delicious. 

Why Is It Called Coffee Cake?

Coffee cake is a term given to foods that are intended to be eaten with coffee, or other brunch type foods. Imagine little cakes you would serve at a tea party or having coffee with a group of friends. There is generally not coffee in the actual cake but it is usually a sweet cake with light streusel or icing. (Source: tastesbetterfromscratch.com)
