This was in a church cookbook. I usually dress it up with raisins and shredded apple, but the recipe is good as it is. It is a great recipe to put into the oven while cooking something else.

Perfect little cake to make quickly. I used rice milk instead of dairy milk and margarine instead of butter. This cake is fluffy, moist and light. I added dried cranberries while folding dry ingredients to wet. It is very important not to over mix the batter.

Needing something quick and easy to bring to work this morning, I chose to make this coffee cake. I ended up making 2 separate cakes and it was a good thing...they are DELICIOUS! I'll definitely put this recipe in the file! It's so easy, takes a short amount of time to bake, and is scrumptious.

Turned out really nice - delicious and moist. I skipped more sugar for the icing, using only cinnamon. If you use a pound cake pan like I did, make sure to add about 10 minutes to the baking time.
