Easter is sneaking up on me this year – it’s next Sunday!
One of my favorite things about Easter is Easter Brunch/Breakfast. Because of our church schedule this year (we go from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.) we will be having breakfast before church and Easter Dinner after church.
Whether we are having Easter breakfast or Easter brunch – a good coffeecake is a must-have on the menu.
I recently found a Copycat recipe for Starbucks Coffee Cake on a food blog I like to visit http://pickypalate.blogspot.com/
This is a simple and easy coffeecake that uses a yellow cake mix. I don’t know how it compares to the real Starbucks Coffee Cake because I have never had it. If you give this recipe a try and you’ve had the real thing – let me know how it compares.
Starbucks Coffee Cake will be part of our menu for Easter breakfast. I’ll share what’s for Easter dinner on Thursday!
