My mom makes a Jewish Coffee Cake for holidays and special occasions that is almost identical to this cake. We love that cake and enjoyed this cake very much too! Easy to make and looks pretty too with the sugar mixture on top. Thank you Oolala now I dont have to wait for my mom to share her recipe. :) Made and reviewed for the Secret Ingredient Tag Game in the game forum.
