Wonderful Sunday morning, my dear friends!


Today is a special Sunday ……. today is the first day …… maiden voyage if you wish of  SURPRISE RECIPE SWAP …… brain child of sweet Jutta from Hungry Little Girl


What is a SURPRISE RECIPE SWAP you ask?


Every month food bloggers from SRS  get assigned a secret food blogger …… have to choose a recipe from their blog …. cook it or bake it ….. and on 20th of each month blog about it and reveal it ……

…. sounds like fun, doesn’t it?


Well, for this first month I was assigned  Cynthia from Feeding Big

Cynthia had so many wonderful recipes to choose from ….. great variety ….. lot of temptation …..


I chose one of  her most popular recipes …… BEST COFFEE CAKE EVER  also known as CINNAMON COFFEE CAKE ……


Cinnamon Coffee Cake


….. oh …… and it was ….. the best COFFEE CAKE ever!

…. light ….. moist ….. covered with thick layer of  brown sugar ….. butter ….. pecans ….. cinnamon.


I made it Saturday morning before my boys woke up ….. the smell of cinnamon & brown sugar was lingering around the house …. nobody slept in that morning.


I am sure your mouth is watering by now so here comes the best part …. the recipe for CINNAMON COFFEE CAKE ….. courtesy of Cynthia from Feeding Big
