This is another of our "southern" favorites. Grandma used to make this, we'd eat it warm with a little butter on top

Hi Lali! Just tried your Grandma's Old Fashioned Coffe Cake recipe and oh my stars, it's fantastic! What a wonderful chocolate flavor. Very easy to mix and quick from the oven to the table. We just ate it plain, but I guess a body could add butter or even frosting if they like. Mighty fine recipe, Girl. Thanks for sharing. Laudee C.
