This is one of those "generational" recipes! It is my delight to share it with you! It is absolutely delicious...a must for a special holiday! As you can see, I couldn't even get a picture made this Christmas before some slices were eaten! I hope your family will enjoy it as much as ours does!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is a relatively easy coffee cake to prepare, but the finished product will have others thinking you've spent hours on it. My husband said it was one of the best coffee cakes he has ever eaten.  Cherie, I can understand why it has been passed down through the generations! The Test Kitchen
