Cinnamon Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

I didn’t intentionally take a week off from cooking/baking/blogging, but work was crazy and I got a sinus infection. It has sucked my will to eat, which is really odd for me. I pretty much always want to eat. Do you guys watch Girls on HBO? I’m watching it now & it’s distracting me because it’s really funny. Totally inappropriate, but funny.

I actually made this coffee cake for Mother’s Day but slacked on posting it. My talented brother took the picture.

I’m having a hard time focusing on this post so I should probably stop rambling.

I’ve never made a coffee cake, or really even eaten one, so I didn’t know what to expect with this one. The flavors were good and isn’t it pretty?

    I made it this morning and to me it was a little dry. It was very easy to put together and I was able to fit it in an 8×8 pan. It smells amazing. I will try it again.
