I wanted a quick and easy coffee cake as I was sick of the ones sold in the stores. So I decided to make one for myself and was very pleased with the results.

My husband has already eaten a quarter of my breakfast snack..wonderful with a hot cup of coffee.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Wow, this is a moist and delicious coffee cake. We all loved it! Part of the topping is swirled and mixed into the batter which carries all the brown sugar goodness throughout the cake. The maple glaze is so tasty. We opted to add macadamia nuts along with pecans to the topping which added a nice a crunch to the cake. Oh, and it smells just wonderful while cooking, kind of like cinnamon rolls. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
