Amish Coffee Cake

This recipe comes from Aunt Nin - she was cook in the Wheelersburg School System in 1968 and 'made up' recipes with what was on hand for teachers meetings etc. I have shared this recipe 100s of time since then. She used the last of the pot coffee so it was stronger. I've made it with fresh morning coffee and it isn't as good - you can use day before coffee.
