NATIONAL KOUIGN AMANN DAY

National Kouign Amann Day is celebrated annually on June 20.  Kouign amann is a round crusty cake, made with a yeast-raised dough containing layers of butter and sugar folded in, similar in fashion to puff pastry or croissants but with fewer layers. The resulting cake is slowly baked until the butter puffs up the dough creating the layered aspect of it and the sugar caramelizes. The name comes from the Breton words for cake (“kouign”) and butter (“amann”). Kouign amann is a popular and traditional pastry in Brittany, where it originated in 1860 when flour was scarce but butter was abundant.

The founder of National Kouign Amann Day, b.patisserie in San Francisco, California, will donate 10% of all proceeds from kouign amann on June 20 to a local charity. They will also be creating special flavors in honor of the day.

NATIONAL BEER DAY

National Beer Day is celebrated annually on April 7th.  Celebrate with a pint of pale ale, lager, stout, wheat beer or mild ale.

One of the world’s oldest prepared beverages, beer possibly dates back to 9500 BC when cereal was first farmed.  It is recorded in the written history of ancient Iraq and ancient Egypt.

Beer is the world’s most widely consumed alcoholic beverage.  Following water and tea, it is the third most popular drink overall.

NATIONAL BEER DAY HISTORY

On April 7, 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt took the first step toward ending Prohibition and signed a law that allowed people to brew and sell beer, in the United States, as long as it remained below 4.0% alcohol by volume (ABV).  Beer drinkers celebrated and were happy to be able to purchase beer again for the first time in thirteen years.

Our research found that this day was created as National Beer Day, an “unofficial” holiday by Justin Smith, a Richmond, VA Craft Beer Examiner and his friend Mike Connolly from Liverpool, England.   April 7th was choosen because of the Cullen-Harrison Act being signed into law and becoming effective on this day.  In 2009, a National Beer Day Facebook page was created by Smith and Connolly from which they invited friends to join.  From that page, word has spread and April 7 is known by many sources as National Beer Day.

NATIONAL COFFEE CAKE DAY

National Coffee Cake Day is celebrated each year on April 7.

Coffee cake is a cake that is intended to be eaten while enjoying a cup of coffee, maybe for breakfast or during coffee break.  One may choose to serve this cake to guests around their coffee table.

The coffee cake itself does not contain any coffee.  They are usually single layer cakes made in square, rectangle or ring shaped pans.  Coffee cakes are often flavored with cinnamon or other spices, seeds, nuts and fruits, such as blueberries or apples.  Typically they have a crumb topping or a glaze drizzle.

There are many different recipes for coffee cake that can be found in recipes books and online.

Enjoy some homemade coffee cake and share it with some friends.
