Whole Wheat Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

Coffee Cake.  That name is just way too misleading.  Call me crazy, but if it’s called ‘Coffee Cake’ why is it that the recipe usually never has coffee IN the cake?  Hmm?  Well, as a coffee fanatic, I just had to remedy that and so this recipe (which smells delightful coming out of the oven) was born.

I hope you enJOY it too!

Best Blessings!
