Sourdough Discard Coffee Cake

This morning I wanted to make a coffee cake and thought it would be fun to add some sourdough discard to the mix and see how it turned out.  
Whenever I look for a specific sourdough recipe on the internet, I get dozens of complex results and very quickly feel overwhelmed.  
Something as simple as a coffee cake should not involve that much work.  
When my children were growing up, I would frequently make something special for breakfast on the weekend.  Usually, quick bread, muffins or coffee cake.  It was a great way to start our day and it is one of my favorite memories of being at home with my family.
