The batter is only a few ingredients, almost all are staples in everyone's kitchen and they fry up within minutes. My daughter loves watching them fry and puff up into a fun web design then drenching them in powder sugar and other sweet tasty toppings.

During christmas time, there is the at one thing people either love or hate, Eggnog. I might not be totally on board with drinking it, however I am a huge fan on how it makes this coffee cake delicious.

The cinnamon streusel gives the coffee cake some sweetness then top off with an additional layer of eggnog icing right after baking. It will be a holiday staple for years to come.

The cake comes out moist, dense, tall and of course delicious.
