What is the difference between coffee cake and cake? Coffee cake is a bit denser than traditional cake, as it typically uses baking powder instead of baking soda for a more moist texture. Coffee cakes are often flavored with nutmeg, cinnamon or other spices, such as cardamom or ginger.


Why is my coffee cake so dry? If your coffee cake is too dry, it may be that you used too much flour in the recipe. Make sure to measure the flour carefully and not heap it when measuring. You can also adjust the amount of liquid in a recipe if needed. Too little liquid or not enough fat will make a cake dry. If possible, try adding an extra tablespoon of butter or oil to the batter.
