This wonderful, light and fluffy coffeecake was in a old settlement cookbook.Just basic ingredients, with a delightful carmel-nut topping.This is baked upside down, with beaten egg whites.It is light as a feather,I am sure you and angels will adore it. With just enough sweet crunch on top, you will think you are in heaven.
