Hungarian Coffee Cake RecipeSarabeth Levine | Sarabeth’s Good Morning Cookbook | Rizzoli, 2015

My daughters go crazy every time I make this Hungarian coffee cake. It was a specialty of their grandmother, whom they called “Amma.” Here, I’ve tried to recreate it exactly as I remember it. Although bordering on bread-like, this cake still tastes like a sweet treat with its streusel topping. I use a babka rolling technique here so that the cinnamon sugar spirals all throughout the twists and turns of the soft dough.–Sarabeth Levine
