    Busy Lindsay's Note:

    This is the best coffeecake I've ever had! So easy to make and always a hit. Not sure if it is really grandma's recipe or if she got it somewhere.

      I made this for my DH to take to work, so I did not get to enjoy this. They all gave it 5 stars. I will make this again for sure.

      Delicious!!!! This gets 5 stars for the great results and taste!!! The only thing I would change with this recipe is the way it is written. I would write the ingredients in order as they are in the Directions. I would suggest that the Directions say to add the sugars, in #2. My topping mixture, from #2 of the directions, didn't get feathery, it was clumpy but well blended. Mine did take 30 mins+ to get completely done. The only changes I made was that I made my own buttermilk (1 tab. lemon juice with one cup milk) and used pecans. Thanks Busy Lindsay for a wonderful recipe. Made for Spring PAC 2008.
