Lemon Berry Coffee Cake

Lemon Berry Coffee Cake


As you well know if you’ve been trying to log on to Caramel Potatoes the past few days, we’ve had some major technical difficulties  {really big headache days} – aaaargh, don’t you just dread that!  We’re so sorry for the inconveniences.  Even we were without access to our favorite recipes.  We appreciate your patience as we continue to get everything restored.  Keep your fingers crossed for us!

To make up for it all, here is a fresh and delicious Lemon Berry Coffee Cake just to keep life on the sunny side.   I hope it brightens your day- it did mine!


Lemon Berry Coffee Cake


This cake is so moist and lemony, plus bursting with fresh berries.  To make it completely irresistible, let’s drizzle it with a little fresh lemon frosting!  I’m not sure whether to serve it as a dessert or for breakfast – so I did both! 😉
