Coffee Cake v 1.0 Aftermath

So while I anticipated the office reaction to the cake would be one of "Well at least it's sweet and I didn't pay for it" dismay, the responses were overwhelmingly favorable. As it turns out, the molten layer, once it has cooled, becomes much less obtrusive (albeit still jarring). Here are my goals for the next time around:

- Create a proper, crumbly streusel
- Eliminate the molten sugar layer while retaining some of the brown sugar richness of flavor
- Make it clear to everyone at the office that a coffee cake may actually contain no coffee whatsoever, but is often so named for its role as a pleasant accompaniment to the beverage
