Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

It is time for leisurely breakfasts, family gatherings and a sweet tooth to be satisfied at sunrise. Our sunrise here in Michigan is bright and white with silver and gold accents. The landscape is snow covered. The tree branches are white lined: winter! The railings are even decorated with brilliant red male and female cardinals flitting in; black and white junco; green/brown siskins; and boisterous blue jays.
Now, as we sit and watch all of this move across the deck and sky… a hot cup of coffee and a
piece of warm cinnamon scented coffee cake fit the bill!
