Oral English: Cinnamon swirl coffee cake

Lets talk about Cinnamon swirl coffee cake. 🙂

I came across this popular desert at Starbucks the other day (see pics below). It reminded me that in English the letter C can sometimes make a soft sound like the letter S, sometimes a hard sound like K.

-Cinnamon is a lightly sweet spice.
-Swirl means “to move in a twisting or spiraling action”

So this bread is often eaten with coffee for breakfast. As you can see it has cinnamon inside that has a dark colored swirl pattern that also acts as a decoration to make it attractive to your eyes, not just attractive for your mouth. 🙂
