The Coffeecake Connection
Today is a good day, I get to experience a gourmet coffee cake from Christine Welch’s The Coffeecake Connection Company. I guess my excitement all started with the packaging. It’s nicely done in a coffee brown color box and bow tied with various brown colors. I opened the box and the nicest aroma of cinnamon swiftly moves across my nose. What great joy knowing I’m going to enjoy today’s breakfast accompanied with a cup of Joe.
Okay here’s the skinny. I think I’m the first person to try their newest creation. Can we say gluten free? Christine indicated to me they’re looking at March for its release to the public. Anyway from that aroma alone it’s clear I’m sampling their Cinnamon Swirl Cake A Lette coffeecake. Again it’s gluten free. I asked myself this; if the cake is beautiful as the actual cover, I can only imagine how the cake stacks up. Speaking of stack, it’s not. One layered, obviously. As I cut me a couple of slices…sorry diet. I’ve noticed inside darken cinnamon and brown sugar swirls, but there’s definitely some other spices I just can’t put my finger on.
How to care for your cake? This is something Christine and The Connection’s strongly believes in. Here are few things to you should consider. First off, when baked they use the freshest ingredients. No nuts just in case you’re wondering. Absolutely no artificial colors, no flavoring, and no preservatives. So when the time comes and you want save a slice, haven’t it frozen is truly an option. You can freeze your cake up to 6 months without losing its freshness. If you’re like me, devouring it within 3 – 5 days is recommended.
Okay moving on. Let’s say you want to heat it up. Here’s my theory, skip nuking it altogether. You have to care for this like a lady. Remember that part in Wedding Crashers. I know what Jeremy is talking about. Place the cake on a cooking sheet into the oven and heat give or take between 170-285 degrees for about 15-20 minutes.
By me writing this article, I finished the cake and half of the coffee pot is gone. So whatever I wrote about the movie Wedding Crashers is out the door. Ha! With Valentine’s, Easter, and Mother’s Day approaching this here and along with Apple Caramel Cinnamon, Eggnog, multiple fruit cakes and their Signature cake are great gifts. Here’s how….
