Coffee Cake Chicago

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Chris from Kansas

This is a very good coffee cake. I have often been asked for the recipe since it is liked by all. Sometimes I also add a glaze to the top to make it extra pretty, but it really doesn't need it. The recipe is from our local newspaper.

I liked it okay, but it didn't have the zingy cinnamon taste throughout that I was hoping for.
