On Mother’s Day all women deserve a special meal to celebrate them, in addition to their flowers or whatever gift you are giving them, after all we are all mother’s of the world, to kids, pets, friends, etc. If you cannot be with your mom because she is far away or you are not a mom (like me) than celebrate YOU!
Although I am not normally a breakfast fan (unless it contains sugar) I thought I would put together a few old and new recipes to make something that is easy and fun to serve. I should warn you, this menu is heavy on sweet dishes.

Here is the recipe for the Cinnamon Cream Cheese Coffee Cake. I found this recipe recently and made it yesterday for some friends. It is delicious and frankly the perfect sweet for any Sunday morning! I hope you try it or any of the other recipes that I have made.
Cinnamon Cream Cheese Streusel Coffee Cake
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup sour cream
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. each: ground nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, allspice
1 (8oz) package cream cheese
1 egg yolk
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup butter (semi-soft)
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9 inch spring form pan with cooking spray and set aside.
Cream the butter and sugar in a medium sized bowl fitted with a paddle attachment for 3-4 minutes.
Add the eggs & sour cream and beat for another 3 minutes.
Sift together in a separate bowl: flour, baking powder, salt, and spices & add to creamed mixture, mix on low just until combined.
Spread 1/2 of the batter into the bottom of a greased spring form pan.
Cream Cheese Filling:
Mix cream cheese with the egg yolk for 1 minute, add sugar and vanilla and mix to combine.
Spread filling mix over coffeecake mix. Spoon remaining 1/2 of coffee cake mixture over top.
Stresuel topping :
Combine all ingredients, using your fingers or fork to cut the butter into the topping mixture until it resembles crumbles. Sprinkle over top.
Bake for 50-55 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack and run a knife around the pan before you remove it.
If you are making something special for your mom, your family or yourself I would love to hear all about it.
Enjoy your day!
THE RECIPE CALLS FOR A 9 INCH PAN. I used a 6 inch spring form pan and two 3 inch pans. If using a smaller pan DO NOT PUT ALL OF THE BATTER INTO ONE CAKE PAN, YOU WILL HAVE A BURNED MESS IN YOUR OVEN. If you use a different size pan you are going to have a much thinner or thicker cake. Please adjust the amount of batter you put into the pan so you do not have these problems.
