Coffee cake doesn’t contain the coffee but these cakes go good with coffee. These have become the need of every family. These can be served anytime. Bakery stores are also aware with growing demand of these cakes and thus offer enough wide range of options. Therefore, we never feel bore with having these. If you too are fond of eating and serving quality cake, you have two options to match this passion. Either find out the baker that can offer the coffee cake strictly as per your expectations or bake it at home.
Both of these options have their own plus and negative aspects. First we will discuss the convenient seeming option of buying packed coffee cake. When you buy a packed cake of reputed brand, you get the perfect shape, perfect baking and good taste. When you approach the stores, you come across many options of brands as well as many flavors. Here, you have the facility to choose 2 or 3 smaller packs of different tastes/brands to get the variety. Generally packed cakes come with 12 months or more expiry date, so you can buy the super saver packs also.
The competition is tough in the market; therefore, every brand offers its cake products at reasonable and competitive price. However, some small players or new entrants can dare to play with quality with intention to attract the buyers with low price. Therefore, never compromise with brand, quality or taste. The negative aspect of this option is that readymade coffee cakes are costlier than homemade ones. Also, even if you are buying the best branded cake, you can’t be sure of ingredients and their quality.
The second alternative we have to enjoy coffee session with cake is to bake the coffee cake at home. It is not a tough task. Though most of ladies are perfect in this art but even you are not, don’t worry. There are plenty of sources that will make you perfect within few days. Get some cooking oriented magazines or surf some websites, go through some videos. Try with smaller amount till you get the perfection. Homemade coffee cakes carry the sweetness of motherly love for the kids. You have more freedom to alter the taste as per exact liking of family members. These are cheaper than readymade cakes. The major plus point that impresses me is that you know what your family members and guests are actually eating. The only negative point is that you need time to spend in kitchen. Decision is yours.
