Creagh's Cinnamon Coffee Cake

I've had this recipe for 30 yrs. My friend Creagh always made this for our Christmas breakfast buffet. It uses 1 1/2 cups of butter, but is simply delicious and easy to make. It is so good with coffee or tea, but makes a good, easy dessert too. It is placed in a COLD OVEN to start.
