Moravian Sugar Cake
The Moravians settled in North America from what is now The Czech Republic and Slovakia by way of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania in the mid-ish 1700s. So, what is Moravian Sugar Cake, exactly?
It is a sweet dough cake that is enhanced with butter, sugar, and cinnamon. It is traditionaly served as an Easter morning breakfast treat, but is an excellent coffee cake year round. This Moravian tradition is extremely yummy!
When it comes to baking, I always find a reason ( which sometimes is odd one! ) to give something a try! And this coffe cake is the case...I decided to go for it just because that the recipe calls for mashed potato..nothing to do with the history or the fact of what the cake really is!
The recipe could be found here.
