    Engrossed's Note:

    Editing per my Grandmother to get the story right: This cake recipe was passed down to my great Grandmother Helen from my Swedish great great Grandmother Maria. It is over 100 years old...possibly 150 or more! Some of my Swedish relatives started the famous Svenhards bakery here in California. They no longer own it but their original packages have my great great Aunt Tilda's (Maria's sister) photo on them! *My Grandmother also says to please beat the egg whites...they make the cake lighter and fluffier.

      Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe Engrossed. The coffeecake was wonderful, moist and tender and it did melt in your mouth. I tried it warm and cold, it was perfect served both ways, plain and also dressed up with fruit and whipped cream. A real winner. This quick and easy to make rich, moist cake doesn't disappoint, it has a lovely texture, with a subtle lemon flavour. I will be making this again often.

      I JUST made this coffee cake and it truly IS light and airy. I'm not a big coffee cake person but I can't seem to stop eating it!!! It definitely will be a hit at tonight's women's ministry meeting. I did substitute coconut milk for regular milk because I didn't have any milk on hand. And I added pecans to the topping. I would have liked it a bit more if there was a bit more butter in the topping but I'll have to remember that for next time! LOVED it. Thank you for sharing it with us!!!

      This is a great coffee cake; hoiwever, I did make a couple of changes. I used the original recipe' being that I love lemon so much, plus, I added pecans to the crumb topping. It is fantastic. I will serve this for brunch many times , I am sure. The cake is very light and airy and not overly sweet.
