This VERY Beautiful, and Famous Davenport Hotel is in Spokane,WA.
Has been known for there signiture coffeecake for many years. This recipe makes two thinner cakes instead of the original that was thicker with a crumbly walnut filling. This is the new revised cake, specially made for when the hotel re-opened a few years back.
This cake is rich, moist and chock-full with butter, sour cream and pecans.
A delicious little slice of cake.
A little piece of heaven.
