Coffee Cake

Coffee Cake

I don’t drink coffee but I do love a tasty coffee cake! It’s not only a wonderful breakfast treat, but it’s also great to snack on.

This is a rediscovered old family recipe. I don’t know how I forgot about it, but it won’t soon be forgotten again!

I may not be a coffee drinker, but I can appreciate the analogy in “You’re the Cream in My Coffee” sung by Gordon MacRae. I think my favorite part about the song itself are the lyrics! Enjoy!
