This EASY Cinnamon Coffee Cake  reminds me so much of the Russian Keks I used to love as a child. If you are short on time, this is PERFECT! Literally took me under 20 minutes to put it together and another 40 to bake it.

 This will be my go-to cake! I’m telling you, Super Easy, Basic Ingredients and Fail-Proof coffee cake that everyone seems to love! Can’t go wrong, right?! Bake it on a Snowy Day, on a Rainy Day, with Kids, without Kids, just DO IT!

I used to make this cake all the time. But, I have lost my recipe notes until few days ago when I was looking for something else and FOUND IT! So Happy! Just in time for last Christmas! It made a Beautiful and Delicious centerpiece as you can see!

Another Delicious variation is to add fruit to this recipe. I think Cinnamon pairs Perfectly with apples, but not so much the other fruit. This is just a personal preference, but you can try.
