After a long search for a cowboy bread recipe that tasted exactly like the one I used to eat in elementary school I found this one. It came from and I absolutely loved it!

This looks just like my sister's Buttermilk Coffeecake...from maybe the 1960's? She made it for her family all the time & it was wonderful! I learned later that it was a Sunset Magazine recipe & was often served at brunch in their test kitchen in Menlo Park, CA.
