Jeen Van Der Meer has created another winner with his Easy coffee cake recipes. I have his How To Make Iced Coffee - 20 Best Iced Coffee Recipes and have enjoyed several recipes.Der Meer starts out explaining what a coffee cake is, then goes into 20 delicious (and as far as google search tells me, original, or at least not cut and pasted from other websites) coffee cakes.There is an interactive TOC so you can find and navigate to recipes easily.Among the twenty recipes, all which sound yummy, are a few standouts that sound amazing and unique, including a white chocolate and cranberry coffee cake, coffee cake biscuits, miniature coffee cakes (perfect for an afternoon snack) and an Amish style coffee crumb cake.I would write more, but alas, it's a rainy dark day in New Orleans and I'm thinking coffee cake would be the perfect pick me up for the day's gloom. The recipes here really inspire me to start baking right now!*Edited because Jeen Van Der Meer is male and I was using "her" instead of "him"
Grandma loves coffee cakes. They're quick & easy to whip up, rarely require a trip to the grocery store and always make a hit for a weekend brunch or spur of the moment afternoon company. Jeen van der Meer presents 20 recipes for a variety of coffee cakes in Easy Coffee Cake Recipes - 20 Delicious Recipes with Cream, Blueberries, Chocolate, StreuselThe recipes are well laid out and individually listed in an interactive Table of Contents that is accessible from the Kindle Navigation Menu.

I think the two previous reviewers said it all. I especially loved "Grandma's" review because all the other ones I have come across by her, it has been a one star review with Grandma excoriating the author for plagiarizing recipes! So, here was the review I placed on Goodreads.I loved this book. The recipes were unusual and easy to make. I did try out the lemon and blueberry coffee cake for my blog this morning and it was fantastic.
I haven't made a coffee cake in years, but it was one of the first baked goods I ever made. They're so quick to make - you could easily prepare the dry ingredients the night before and bake one while you're getting ready for work in the morning. Your co-workers will think you're a goddess - lol!Mr. van der Meer's recipes start out with a basic sour cream coffee cake and move on to some very delicious-sounding coffee cake variations. Of the twenty recipes, all but six are from scratch.The recipe for Mascarpone and Almond Coffee Cake uses yeast as leavening instead of baking powder and baking soda. It sounds delicious and I'll bet its very elegant, too. Espresso Mocha Twist Coffee Cake also appeals, as do Nutty Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake and Cranberry and White Chocolate Coffee Cake.Some recipes could use more clarity, but I think anyone with a modest knowledge of baking would have no problem using them. The recipe for Yogurt Coffee Cake calls for plain yogurt but doesn't say which type (non-fat, low-fat, regular or Greek?) The recipe for Nutty Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake says to toast the chopped pecans or walnuts in a "warm oven" for 9 minutes. An oven temperature would be appropriate. I did like the sentence in the description for Mascarpone and Almond Coffee Cake: "If you want to make this coffee cake, you need a good day, because the dough has to sit in the refrigerator overnight." Obviously Mr. van der Meer means you need 24 hours and is not referring to the weather or whether or not you have PMS. :)The cookbook is formatted very nicely, with each recipe beginning on its own page. There are no pictures - sniff!
Jeen van der Meer must be a coffee genius. His two other books (Cool Coffee Creamer Secrets and How To Make Iced Coffee) are full of coffee-related recipes. I don't often bake, but I am a coffee enthusiast -- I'm not even crazy about coffee cakes. But this book piqued my interest, so I gave it a chance.Easy Coffee Cake Recipes is a great eBook -- the recipes here are easy and delicious! The instructions are concise, brief, and very clear. There's not much confusion in the recipes, so newbies such as myself will be able to make their very own coffee cakes. One thing I especially enjoyed about this book was its interactivity. The table of contents allows Kindle users to easily fly back and forth between recipes.The Kindle edition of this book are currently free. There's really no reason not to download this book of tasty recipes.Recipes I particularly enjoyed:Basic Coffee CakeAmish Style Coffee Crumb CakeCoffee Cake AmericanaWalnut Coffee CakeGraham Cracker Coffee CakeVanilla Coffee Cake
