Coffee Cake
My notes: Without an exact measurement on the lemon extract, 1 teaspoon is a good starting place. I liked the citrus flavor it added, but in future I will go with fresh orange or lemon juice and zest. Greg liked the top crust the cinnamon and sugar mixture created but wasn't a fan of the citrus flavor of the cake.

This cake is very moist and has a really nice light crumb and came together quickly on a weekend morning, it was almost as good the next day (didn't dry out much at all), and was especially good when a piece was split in half and put on the griddle with some butter.
