Maple Almond Coffee Cake

I threw this experiment together for breakfast the other morning. I've never heard of a coffee cake that uses both maple and almond extracts, so I thought I'd play around in the kitchen and see what the final product would taste like. It actually tastes really good. Hope you also enjoy this as much as my family did.
