A Stunning Topping for Your Cinnamon Coffee Cake

NB: You have to add the topping while your cake is still hot or it will not work! So you should reduce the cooking time down by 5 minutes if you want to add a topping and then follow the rest of the recipe.

There are several variations for a suitable topping, but as I like coconut and nuts, so here goes…


  • 1 cup of coconut
  • Half to 2/3 of a cup of brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup of butter
  • Half cup of double cream


Mix the ingredients together and spread over the cake while it is still hot. Put the cake into the top of the oven until the coconut topping has turned a light golden color (anything up to 5 minutes is usually enough.
