My late friend Jean gave me this simple and delicious coffeecake recipe. It is easy and perfect for breakfast, a mid-morning coffee klatch or a snack any time of the day. You should be able to mix and bake it in 30 minutes.

This coffeecake had a nice, buttery, cinnamony flavor but it took longer than 24 minutes to bake. It seemed like the middle would never get done even though the sides were cooked, but after about 40 minutes it was ok (but it was very soft in texture). My oven runs hot, so I was surprised it took so long. Good taste and I will try this again because it was an easy recipe. I would add a little more flour (about 1/8-1/4 cup). I made this for Spring PAC 2010. Thanks!
