The March 2011 Daring Baker’s Challenge was hosted by Ria of Ria’s Collection and Jamie of Life’s a Feast. Ria and Jamie challenged The Daring Bakers to bake a yeasted Meringue Coffee Cake.

Mets la main à la pâte!

What an interesting challenge--and get this....I strayed from the recipe!! Whoooo hoooo! Well, kinda. I made the whole recipe, and followed the filling for one, then had fun with the 2nd. Maaaaannnnnn they are good! I need to find someone to give to so all my running won't go to shame.

1st cake--chocolate chips, pecans, cinnamon-sugar
2nd cake-- Cafe' Vienna instant coffee, chocolate chips

I did realize after pulling them out of the oven that I totally forgot to put an egg wash over tops before baking! ooops! And I'm just now seeing the confectioners sugar topping. I can see where this would throw it over the top, but it defiantly didn't NEED it. So it might not look as pretty, but the taste is incredible!!!

Thanks Ria and Jamie for the yummy challenge! [my butt is not thanking you, however ;) ]
