I miss a lot of things about "normal" life, but at the top of the list -- sitting in a cafe for hours to drink coffee and snack on fresh coffee cake. This coffee cake is made with paleo ingredients, but if you're not strictly paleo, I highly recommend topping it with an icing that is super simple to make. It's a game changer!

All you'll need for the icing is 3 tbsp almond milk (or any other kind of milk) and 1/3 cup powdered sugar. Increase the milk or powdered sugar incrementally until you get to the desired consistency.

This paleo coffee cake is the perfect breakfast or late night treat.
