“This coffe cake is amazing!! You have to try it. I found this recipe in a cookbook i recently purchased: Cooking Smart for a Healthy Heart. This moist and tender cake is bursting with juicy berries. Brown sugar and cinnamon make it so melt-in-your mouth delicious that you won't believe that its lower in calories, fat, and cholesterol than traditional coffee cake. And the aroma from the baking cake is sure to rouse the sleepyheads at your house. Serve it warm from the oven-it's worth waking up for. :) Traditional coffe cake recipes call for at least 2 egg, but using just one whole egg and an egg white ensure that your cake will have a light, delicate texture. It also makes this even healthier.”
