Baking Bits

Mini Coffee Cake


I wanted to come up with a Thank you gift the other week for someone, who really helped me in s tight spot. I love doing Thank you cards, but adding a baked treat with it makes it more fun! I had found these adorable mini loaf liners at Hobby Lobby and they were waiting for me to make something special in them. I usually make this Coffee Cake in a 9×13 pan, but I thought, why not make them in these mini loaf liners? Add a bag of coffee to it for a perfect Sweet Thank You!

This cake is of course, easy to make and I love that you can use any fruit. I used fresh strawberries, fresh blueberries, rhubarb, or raspberries would work as well! It is moist because of the sour cream, and its not overly sweet. It will be a great recipe to add to your go – to collection!
