Coffee cake is one of those incredibly versatile "dessert/breakfast" goodies. You can bring it as a hostess gift, share it with friends at brunch, serve it up with espresso after dinner, or even nosh on it as a luscious midnight snack. Given just how many occasions it's good for and how perfect it is to have one hangin' around in case you get unexpected visitors or need something to bring to a get-together, how come we're not baking them up more often?
