This recipe was given to my mother by a neighbor in 1957. She said it was copied from an article saying it was Michael Todd's favorite sweets. I think coffee cakes are easy to make and serve at any time. Coffee cake is older than America, brought here by German, Dutch and Scandinavian settlers. By paying a penny in Europe, you could go in the coffee house and listen to the poets and politicians. At first, coffee cakes had the aroma of coffee by adding some to the dough.
