Jewish Coffee Cake

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Charlotte J

My mother in law made this for her family for many years. My husband just loves it when she served it warm. A little cream over it when it is warm sounds good to me. (There is no vanilla or cake mix in this recipe, if you wonder if I forget it.)

Wonderful! Make it in the 13x9 pan. It bakes up nice and thick. It's a really satisfying treat!
