Cowboy Coffee Cake

Cowboy Cake from Kaye's Cupboard (2)Ah, cake for breakfast. It’s such a great way to start the morning, right? This cake is a delight; it’s light and crumbly, with the perfect amount of cinnamon and nutmeg. I really like the extra brown sugar, butter, and flour crumbs on top, because it adds such a great texture.

Cowboy Cake from Kaye's Cupboard (4).I put this together one morning when my husband was out of town, and I wanted something special to get the day off to a good start. It comes together quickly and gave us just enough time to finish an obligatory bowl of cereal before digging in. I love that this isn’t overly sweet; it’s perfect for a cozy morning!
