This is a WONDERFUL recipe. I first served it at a brunch I held a few years ago. The recipe went over very well, and I received many compliments. This is also a great afternoon snack when you are craving something moist and sweet. Enjoy!

This coffee cake is a hit at our house and then some. I just took some over a dear old fella that knows good stuff and he loved this cake. I did top it off with a homemade peach topping. This is a fast, easy cake to make and turns out every time. Thank you for sharing with us!!!!
