What is the size of a Dave's Coffee Cake? Are there multiple sizes? How many servings is in 1 cake?

We only make 1 size of Coffee Cake - a 9" round cake! A serving is 1/8 of the cake, so 1 cake has 8 servings!

How do I store my Coffee Cake before eating? Should I refrigerate it? Can it be frozen?

To store your cake, please leave it on the counter (7 to 10 days) or freeze it (guaranteed for 90 days, but cakes can be frozen up to a year or longer)! Please do NOT refrigerate your Dave's Coffee Cake! Our cake freeze VERY well! We guarantee up to 90 days in the freezer, but you can freeze them much longer! If you aren't going to use the cake within the next 3 to 5 days (after purchase), we recommend freezing it! This allows the cake to have an extended shelf-life after thawing! To thaw, just remove the cake from the freezer and let it thaw on your counter for 1 to 2 hours! Our cake will taste just as fresh once it has been thawed as it did when you bought it!

What is the Shelf-Life of a Dave's Coffee Cake? How long will it be good for?

Dave's Coffee Cakes are good for 7 to 10 days on the counter or for 90 days (or more) in the freezer! Please do NOT refrigerate your Coffee Cake!

I purchased a Dave's Coffee cake with Cream Cheese in it. Should I refrigerate it? Does it need to be kept cool?

The cream cheese in any Dave's Coffee Cake is baked with the cake! This eliminates the need to refrigerate the cream cheese or to keep it cool! Your Cream Cheese Coffee Cake is safe to keep at room temperature!

Does my Dave's Coffee Cake need to be Baked / Cooked?

All of our products are baked in our Family Owned and Operated bakery in Rock Falls, IL, and are sold as ready-to-eat products! Since are cakes are baked by our gifted bakers, you don't need to bake or cook the cake at all! If you would like to warm the cake, that is your choice! We recommend microwaving your Coffee Cake for a few seconds, if desired!

I have an allergy to nuts. Should I eat a Dave's Coffee Cake?

Dave's Coffee Cake does NOT recommend anyone with nut allergies to eat our products! Some of our cakes contain tree nuts or peanuts, and we cannot guarantee that any of our cakes are nut-free! (We use Coconut, Peanut Butter Chips, Almonds, Pecans, and Walnuts in our facility.) While not all of our cakes have nuts, we do NOT recommend serving to anyone with nut allergies! All of our products are baked in the same facility, where we use Tree Nuts and Peanuts!
If you have a dislike of nuts but are not allergic, please try any of our cakes that do not have nuts listed in the name / flavor!
