Baked Coffee Cake

By Traeger Kitchen

Classic coffee cake bakes up tender and aromatic on the Traeger. Delicious as is, you can also dress the cake up with a bit of icing. To make the icing, simply mix 1/2 cup powdered sugar with 1 to 2 tablespoons of milk, depending on the consistency you're after. A splash of vanilla, about 1/4 teaspoon, is nice, too. Dip a fork into the glaze and drizzle it over the cake as desired.
