Make yourself happy, choose a sweet indulgence.
It's National Coffee Cake Day, and April is National Food Month.

Yes, there are people out there getting paid to come up with these national days and to get them officially proclaimed.  I know our son often gets a laugh, or sometimes a smile, when I tell him it's National Coffee Cake Day or whichever other day it happens to be.  As silly as it may seem, it is also fierce business for the various food industries and the public relations folks who represent them.

So enjoy the day knowing you have reason to celebrate your coffee break with cake.
    • If you have a vintage recipe of your own which you would like to share,  leave the link to your post with the linky below.
    • Starting Monday, April 11th, I will also have a linky for Monday Mmm ... Dessert, where you can link up any kind of dessert recipe.

    I post recipes from the Household Searchlight Recipe Book, first published in 1931. My 16th printing is from 1943.  What will you post?


    1. Not quite sure that I linked my recipe up to the right place but your welcome to move it Monday's recipes if that is where you think it should be.

    2. Coffee coffee coffee cake! I absolutely adore making this...its perfect for quick snack attacks, guests coming over and just enjoying in the morning!

      I had no clue that April 7th was Coffee Cake day! Need to pay attention to that date in the future! LOL
