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! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
