I know – coffee cake and tea?
Does that even make sense?
I just had to share this vegan coffee cake I made this weekend.
I used this Coffee Cake Recipe and whipped it up Saturday morning after a Nick requested it. We haven’t made coffee cake in years, so it was about time we had it again.
And since we were out of eggs early Saturday morning before I bought groceries, it worked out perfectly.
I’m loving all the vegan baked goods I’ve been making lately – everything has turned out great and it’s nice to know that I can still whip something up even if I’m out of eggs or milk or butter. Plus, clean up is a breeze! And you can eat the dough with no worries ;)
I think the only thing I would change about this recipe is adding a little sugar to the crumble topping – I wanted the topping to be a little crispier. Otherwise, it was great! Nick and I both enjoyed it.
As for the tea, I have a new favorite!
OpenSky hooked me up with Golden Moon Tea and sent me these samples from Golden Moon / TigerWing to try. I’m already obsessed, and I just got them yesterday!
They’re going in my store as soon as I can get them in there.
Just check out these flavors!
Last night, I had a cup of the Calmation TigerWing tea which is a mix green mate, chamomile, lavender, and all natural lavender vanilla cream flavorings. It was the perfect way to end my evening – I already love chamomile tea, but the addition of lavender was outstanding.
This morning, I’m sipping on a cup of the Coconut Kava Cream TigerWing tea. I mean, how could this be bad?
It’s got roasted mate, red roobios, kava root, and all natural coconut cream flavoring.
On top of having a ton of flavor choices, all their teas are organic and a portion of Golden Moon Tea’s net profits are contributed to The Lotus 88 Foundation for Women and Children. They also purchase their tea solely from farmers who engage in fair-trade practices.
But the most important (and exciting) thing that I noticed?
They’re in Virginia!!! I was so ecstatic when I saw that they’re a somewhat-local company. I may need to plan a trip to visit :)
I’ve got a hair appointment during my lunch break so I’ll see you for dinner! I’m using up the last of our sourdough in a recipe tonight – it should be good.
What’s your favorite drink to have with breakfast?
