Mom's Divine Coffee Cake

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Chef Sweet Sal

I got this recipe from mom, who got it out of an old cookbook, and decided to rename it "Mom's coffee cake" . In fact, she renamed everything "moms" if it was good! Anyways, it is a great basic coffee cake, and can be made with or without the nuts. Impress your work friends, church group, or house guests. It is yummy, and tastes better the next day.
