Coffee Cake

IMG_5266Hi there again!  We’re into a new week and it’s finally starting to feel like like fall may be coming here to the desert soon.  We were FINALLY able to turn off the AC today and open up for some wonderful outside air!  I love when the windows are open. 🙂

Another first for today?  I was able to have the oven on without heating up the house!  Woohoo!  It definitely makes for more comfortable baking and I obviously love ❤ to bake.

The recipe I’m sharing today is great for this time of year. It goes great with some hot apple cider, hot chocolate or coffee, of course. 🙂  It may seem like an overly-simple cake compared to all the fancy-smancy stuff you’ll see everywhere, but it is overly-yummy as well.  Sometimes we just want some simple, homey, comfort food.  This definitely fits that bill…IMG_5264
