Almond Coffee Cake

Pat Duran


You will love this coffeecake if you love true almond flavor and coffee.
This is so good with your morning coffee..This recipe was given to me by a member of our Church when I lived in Alburqueque,NM...she was a recipe hound like most of us...
This cake is best if made a day ahead ; cover and let stand at room temperature.
