American Cranberry Coffee cake

Coffee cake is cake intended to be eaten with, or flavored with, coffee. British coffee cake is a sponge flavoured with coffee.[1] They are generally round and consist of two layers separated by coffee flavoured butter icing, which also covers the top of the cake. Walnuts are a common addition to coffee cakes.[2] In the United States, coffee cake generally refers to a sweet cake intended to be eaten with coffee or tea (like tea cake).[3][4]

Coffee cakes, as an accompaniment for coffee, are often single layer, flavored with either fruit or cinnamon, and 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. Sour cream is used in traditional American coffee cakes to both impart a tart flavor and activate baking soda used as a leavening agent.[5]
