Top Review by ForeverMama

My favorite part of this coffee cake was the lovely topping made of coconut, brown sugar and cinnamon. It was well enjoyed by my family! Though I made it in the evening, I so badly wanted to have coffee with it. I saved a piece for tomorrow morning so I can savor it then with my coffee. When I make this again, I will add pieces of butter to the topping to make it more of a streusel type topping. Adding butter makes everything more scrumptious. Made it for "Went to the Market" tag game. Thank you Dienia B for another addition to my "keeper" files.
