I have had this tattered, torn recipe stuck in an even older and more tattered cookbook since I was a young bride. I'm not even sure where I got it in the first place but I've been using this as my GO TO coffeecake recipe for forty years. You won't be disappointed in its moist, deliciousness, I promise.
