Gingerbread Coffee Cake with Ginger Cream

Gingerbread Coffee Cake with Ginger Cream recipeThis giveaway is now closed! Thanks for participating!

Holiday baking done? Check.

Wait, no check? You too? What are we doing, with less than a week until Christmas and the baking frenzy hasn’t even begun? Yeah, I don’t really know either, but I just haven’t felt that Christmas spirit push to spend all day in the kitchen baking up lovely treats for everyone. Hopefully it hits soon. I’ll hope so for you too, ok?

I did bake something so good this week. It’s actually a contender for a spot at Christmas morning brunch…Gingerbread Coffee Cake with Ginger Cream. Doesn’t that sound good? It was a soft coffee cake, with a delicious gingerbread flavor, and an indulgent ginger spiked cream to top it off. I’ll take this for breakfast any day, thank you very much! 

KCup Countertop Storage GiveawayI used actual coffee in my coffee cake recipe. I love using coffee in baked goods, and the Gingerbread K-Cup from Green Mountain Coffee added a lovely richness to the cake.

Speaking of coffee, are you hoping to find a Keurig Coffee Brewer under your tree this Christmas? If so, you’ll also want one of these handy K-Cup countertop storage drawers. You can keep all of your new K-Cups nice and tidy. And guess what? I’m going to give you the chance to win one!
