Dear SOS: The coffee cake at South Pasadena’s Heirloom Bakery and Cafe, near the train station, is fabulous. Each day it’s flavored differently for variety ... chocolate chips, raspberry, etc.
I would love to have the recipe to make at home for a treat for those days when my walking partner and I aren’t splurging and stopping for breakfast.
Dear Joanne: We loved the light texture and subtle tang of this simple coffee cake, marbled with a wonderfully crumbly topping of brown sugar, cinnamon, pecans and chocolate chips. A slice of this should brighten any morning.
