Cake cake cake for breakfast! Except this cake has a hidden veggie… Cinnamon Zucchini Coffee Cake. Pretty much the best way to eat your veggies for breakfast!
One thing I’ve loved about our new-ish house, is being able to have guest stay comfortably.
Once we had Poppy, our old 2 bedroom house became NOT guest friendly at all. Basically guests had to sleep on the couch in our living room and we all had to share the 1 bathroom. Although it’s not the end of the world, I love not having to worry about that anymore.
Now we have a designated guest room that is always ready: bed made, closet set up, just waiting for our next guest.
I like having overnight guests. Is that weird? Being the type A, people pleaser that I am, I love hosting others. Surprise surprise right? You could have probably guessed that from the amount of cooking I do ha!
I do admit though, I am much better with onesie twosie guests rather than large groups. Anytime we have someone or a couple stay over, I see it as an excuse to BAKE!!! Since I normally have a limit to how much I can bake because we are only 3 people in our house, company means time to get my bake on.
As a host or a guest, I truly believe that best thing ever is waking up to a glorious pot of coffee and a home baked good.
With that in mind, I was pumped to treat our last guest to some damn good coffee (courtesy of my new love/coffee maker) and my Cinnamon Zucchini Coffee Cake!
Now don’t get scared, just because this coffee cake has the word zucchini in it. Think of it almost like zucchini bread, where the shredded veggie just melts into the cake, making it insanely moist and delicious!
Add on a cinnamon sugar crumble and I’ve pretty much died and gone to heaven. Seriously guys, this coffee cake is truly fabulous. The perfect thing to make if you have a questionable zucchini left in your veggie drawer or a bunch in your home garden.
What’s even better about this coffee cake is it’s not that bad for you. It is about 220 calories a serving and relatively low in sugar, so it’s a pretty guilt free way to start the day!
Trust me, next time you have a guest, make them this coffee cake and a nice cup of coffee. You will both have such a lovely morning, you won’t want breakfast to end!
