It's easy to slip into boring eating trends in the middle of the week, especially for the first and last meals of the day: breakfast and dessert. You've probably already resigned yourself to skipping both. Pathetic.
Two simple words will set you free: Coffee Cake. This particular one is bejeweled with chocolate chunks and crunchy hazelnuts. But don't worry about getting caught: A cup of coffee will disguise this treat as breakfast, and a scoop of ice cream transforms it into dessert. Of course, you can just eat it exactly how it is, and start and end your day on a sweet note.
