Coffee Cake in NYC?
Looking for the best coffee cake in NYC. I prefer sour cream coffee cake with brown sugar streusel topping, over cakes with crumb toppings (too floury), but am open to hearing the best of any type.
The best I know -- which is good, but not perfect -- is Two Little Red Hens' Pecan Crunch. Others?
Seconded! Their apple and plain variations are equally noteworthy. (They also have that Books of Wonder location on 18th bet. 5th and 6th.) I also like the blueberry coffeecake at Amy's Bread, and the streusel coffeecake at Little Pie Company. Chicory in Cobble Hill/Carroll Grdns used to carry a moist and delicious bundt cake, but I don't know that they still have it...
Thanks! I was beginning to think I was the only NYer who likes coffee cake.
The problem with making it yourself (which I've done) is that you then have a whole cake. Which my doctor recommends against. And in any event, I like trying others' variations on the basic theme.
