Triple Berry Coffee Cake

20140522-214617.jpgI have a breakfast problem. I seriously crave sweets in the morning. Well lets be honest, my perfect breakfast involves a savory breakfast followed by a sweet breakfast dessert. So I decided it was time I introduced my daughter to the two course breakfast. Breakfast sausage first, and then coffee cake.20140522-214630.jpgPeople this was the best coffee cake I’ve ever had. The crumb topping is epic. It’s soooo good. Seriously you need to make this. And it’s super easy. Mix, pour and bake. Do it this weekend, you will not be sorry.20140522-214640.jpg
