    Benthe (Danish)'s Note:

    This is the moistest and most spongy coffee cake I know. Back in the 1980 this was the one you got no mater where you went or what the occasion was. When I returned to Denmark after 18 years in the States, I remember getting this at my cousin’s house, and the first bite was like, memories of childhood and perfect summers. I had forgotten how good it was. My DB calls this the “ant cake” because once the topping is baked, the coconut flakes, does look like little ants.

      Fabulous! The family loved it! A keeper for sure. I had a bit of a problem trying to convert from grams, but I used a stick of butter that was labelled in grams for my benchmark. Thank you for sharing this fabulous recipe!!! LA :-)
