Lithuanian Coffee Cake

Another treat we enjoyed at Claire's Corner Copia was her signature Lithuanian Coffee Cake. It comes with or without buttercream frosting; if you are a regular reader of this blog, you already know that we chose with.

The coffee cake is rich and heavy, like pound cake but with spices and the occasional knot of small raisins and walnuts dotted through the crumb. The buttercream icing was plopped in a big mound on the side of the sunny yellow plate for us to take as much or as little as we wanted.

Claire's recipes are available in any of three cookbooks reminiscent of the fabled Moosewood Cookbook, and I found the link to the recipe for the coffee cake online. If you are in New Haven, however, do stop in at Claire's for a piece of Lithuanian Coffee Cake and a cup of her espresso hot chocolate. Then, go do something smart.
