A delightful sweet baked breakfast to wow your family or your guests. Perfect for potlucks, meal trains, or even a friendly gift for your neighbor.
There’s just something about a soft but crumbly cake intermingled with a gooey layer of butter and sugar topped with a little crunch. I’m all for traditional cinnamon streusel coffee cake, but to be honest, I always want chocolate. Chocolate in the morning, chocolate in the evening, chocolate at supper time. (If you know, you know.) The flavors in s’mores are always winner in my book, so why not find a way to sneak that into “breakfast”? (Not in the form of PopTarts.)
I made this yesterday afternoon, and I had a lovely plate with a square of coffee cake and two slices of bacon in front of me for breakfast this morning. Then I looked up and saw my two kids staring at me, I mean glaring at me as they realized I was eating some version of cake and they had scrambled eggs. Tantrums and negotiations quickly followed. Note to self: eat in private.
In all honesty, this is one of the best things I have come up with and baked ever. I did a lot of research into different coffee cake recipes, and finally settled on a happy medium between them that didn’t have TOO much fat (I was able to sub some of the fat for applesauce). I used combinations of base recipes from Lil’ Luna, Taste of Home, and The Salty Marshmallow along with many other variations. The s’mores adornments and streusel layer were original to me 🙂
