Like most cake recipes, coffee cake is a recipe that has evolved over hundreds of years and across continents. People have been preparing honey cake recipes since biblical times. Gradually the French came up with recipes for galettes, the forerunner of the fruitcake recipe. Galettes also led to the invention of sweet yeast rolls that eventually resulted in Danish coffee cakes, which really did contain coffee in their list of ingredients. For some reason, the Dutch and Germans in New York, New Jersey and Delaware became particularly famous for their coffee cake recipes. Their cake recipes from the colonial times are very similar to those cake recipes still used today. The British also have their own version of coffee cake recipe that includes toffee. By 1879, coffee cake recipes were well-known in America, and there were already countless recipes for recipes such as crumb cakes, streusel cake recipes and streusel/crumb-cake combinations. Streusel cake recipes have that swirl of cinnamon/brown sugar throughout the center of the dessert recipes, while crumb cakes have a topping of crumbly flour, sugar and butter and cinnamon. Streusel means granules and actually refers to the crumb topping of the cake recipe, not the swirl.
