You will love this coffeecake if you love true almond flavor and coffee.
This is so good with your morning coffee..This recipe was given to me by a member of our Church when I lived in Alburqueque,NM...she was a recipe hound like most of us...
This cake is best if made a day ahead ; cover and let stand at room temperature.
