    NurseJaney's Note:

    I searched through ALL 500+ coffee cakes listed, and did not find one like this !! Have NO idea who Miss Helen was, but my MIL gave me this recipe when we were first married (48 years ago), and it has always been a favorite - and a hit.

      Mike loves YOU!!! and of course Miss Helen! LOL I made thos for him to take to work. He called to say I had to make more because everyone ate it up! So made a 2nd one Sat morning for him to take to the cottage whilst doing the opening up with some buddies. um he did not share LOL he said it was too good so he ate some for breakfast, then lunch then after dinner and on Sunday morning again! OMG! Ok so today, MONDAY I made a 3rd one and split the batter in 2- 8" rounds. One is for tonight when he gets home as FIL is coming over for dinner and I plan to put scoops of ice cream on top and the other round is for him to take to work again if it makes it. LOL
      SO my dear friend 5 stars all around the house 3 days in a row!!!

      Disappointing. Recipe seemed like it had potential, but it took almost 50 minutes to at least bake it and it was tasteless, dry, and the topping was strange and taste flour. I had to add a bunch of cream cheese to at least bring out the flavor.

      NurseJaney please thank your DMIL for sharing Miss Helen's recipe for this coffee cake! We loved it and I very much liked how easy it was to make. I also love cinnamon and added a couple shakes more then the recipe called for. This is not an overly sweet cake but is light and tender, perfect with a cup of coffee or tea any time of the day. Made and reviewed for the Aussie/NewZealand Forum's RECIPE SWAP #64 - May 2012.
