Nothing makes the kitchen smell better than coffee cake, gentle and cinnamonny. This morning's breakfast was a variation on our favorite. Instead of using cherries or blueberries I thinly sliced several fresh apricots and set them on the batter, then sprinkled with streusel. Very nice. Would have been even nicer if I had had some almond paste cut in small dice to strew around the apricots, and some sliced almonds . . .
