    My dad's favorite ...I believe it's from the 30s. He's no longer here but I made it for his 98th birthday. Have this exact rwcipe in his handwriting

    Made this recipe this morning for Sunday breakfast. The only changes I made was to use Splenda brown sugar blend, and omitted the nuts (both due to DH's current dietary restrictions). Baked the cake in a 9x13 (instead of two 8x8's). This coffee cake is very easy & quick to put together and tasted delicious - especially warm from the oven. Thanks for posting! -M =)

    A very delicious coffeecake. I too used butter instead of the shortening too. I used buttermilk in place of the soured milk and pecan were my nut choice. I also added 1/4 cup of the pecans to the batter. (I only make one cake) The finished cake had a lovely, not-too-sweet, "butter pecan" flavor. It is a new favorite here! Thanks for sharing.

    I used a cup of plain fat-free yogurt to make this instead of the sour milk. Also, I substituted the shortening with butter. I like using walnuts in this cake. Its a great cake and a must try!

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I live in Texas. I enjoy quilting, gardening, cookbooks and have an obsession for recipes!! I have 4 children, 2 dogs, 2 cats, a bird, fish, stock show animals (cows, pigs, etc.) I basically own a small zoo. I have a full-time job - plus I handle the books for my husbands shop. I really do enjoy reading through recipes trying to plan out meals, re-decorate a different room in the house or re-organize a closet - getting the kids all in bed early!!
