Coffee cake is a common cake or sweetened bread available in many countries. It is generally intended to be eaten with coffee or tea (like tea cake), offered to guests as a gesture of hospitality, or served as a brunch food. It is leavened with either baking soda (or baking powder), which results in a more cake-like texture, or yeast, which results in a more bread-like texture.
Coffee cakes are typically single-layer cakes; they are often square, but may also be rectangular, round, or ring-shaped (either as a tube cake or as a bundt cake). They can be flavored with cinnamon or other spices, nuts, and fruits. Despite their name, they do not contain coffee. These cakes sometimes have a crumb topping called streusel and/or a light glaze drizzle.
