This easy but delicious coffee cake has been a treat for my family since it was published in Louisiana Cookin'. Thanks for sharing it! I had lost the issue and my scrap of paper where I had saved it was ragged. Now I can find it whenever we want this special treat!

This is a five-star cake all the way! I have been making this one for several years and it never fails to turn out beautifully, both in looks and taste. Plus it's fairly quick to mix up and bake. This is a great recipe; I was glad to find it here on 'zaar!
