The FLUFFIEST cake you will ever taste...


A soft, fluffy coffee cake

I fell head over heels IN LOVE with this loaf. Scared to admit that I devoured the whole loaf within a day and a half but I guess that means the recipe was a total success haha! It is so unbelievably fluffy and moist that one slice just doesn't cut it. It makes the perfect mid-day snack to go with your coffee and tea!

This recipe uses simple ingredients that one would already have in their pantry.
