Nothing says Valentines Day like coffee cake right? Well for me, it’s a simple equation, COFFEE = LOVE, so when my girlfriend Megan (The Microwave Master) had to figure out what to get me for Valentines Day, she settled on baking me a coffee cake! Given that she has only baked for me once during our nearly three year relationship, it was sure to be an undertaking! Initially she was going to make it as a surprise, but since I was in charge of supper, and already at her house, we made it together, which was 100% better, because i’m always bugging her to cook with me! It was a wonderful gift, and while I didn’t have my camera on me at the time, I made sure to get some photos the next day so I could document this beautiful cake, and create Megan’s FIRST BLOG POST! YAAAA! Maybe she will become a food blogger too! (Pig’s can fly right?).
Anyways, here is the recipe, slightly modified from The Tasty Bite’s Buttermilk Coffee Cake.

Before I start this post I have to say that I recently discovered something that is more powerful than google: mothers. Yes, that’s right, mothers. While in the city-wide hunt for gelatin to make the homemade marshmallows, I came across pectin. Some would say pectin would be a suitable sub for gelatin, however, the mother said no and she was right…
I saw these Make & Takes blog and was instantly inspired to make them as they looked cute and delicious! The bottom is a creamy fudge that dissolves into the depths of a warm cup of milk (or soy/almond milk for those lactose people out there) and the marshmallow can be removed to float on top or stirred in for extra sweetness! Let’s get to the two-tiered recipe.
