Chef's Tip

You can also use an 8in pan for the coffee cake. If you do, follow everything exactly, but make sure to adjust your baking times. It will likely take longer to bake through. The cake will take anywhere from 65-75 minutes. Check cake around 60 minutes and bake until a toothpick comes out clean!
