CoffeeCakePie is a cake, brownie, or quick-bread recipe designed to be made in a pie dish and baked in a toaster oven. That’s it.
At some point I was looking for a coffee cake recipe, but I only wanted to make a small amount, and I wanted it to be made quickly. The solution was to make it in a pie dish. After I made my first one, one of my children asked what it was. The CoffeeCakePie was born.
Although there are no rules in making a CoffeeCakePie, they are typically made using only one bowl, and only take about 20 minutes to bake. This sure beats the typical 1+ hour bake time of a loaf of quick-bread like banana bread.
