On a wintry Sunday morning what better than to enjoy your morning coffee with a warm moist cinnamony coffee cake. This recipe calls for heaping spoons of cinnamon. Most receipes call for sour cream , but to make it healthier I add Greek yogurt. The difference between sour cream and Greek yogurt is that I make mine without eggs and so the Greek yogurt keeps it moist for couple of days, while with the sour cream the cake looks dry by evening.
Cinnamon is a warming spice that instantly gives your body warmth. It is excellent to have during cold winters. It also has medicinal benefits. It has a high source of antioxidants, contains anti inflammatory properties, benefits skin, helps to fight with allergies and many more.
