  1. Thank you for posting this. I’ve been making this since the 80’s, it’s my all time favorite coffee cake. I served it to a staff member at the Culinary School I went to and she was a pastry chef at a well known resort. She loved it! I got rid of my cookbook with the recipe a few years back. I’m thrilled to find it online. :)
  2. It's a very rich, simple coffeecake - which is good! I thought that it would be a lot better if you were to use fresh peaches instead. You could really tell the peaches used in the recipe were of the canned variety. That's the only change I'd make. :)
  3. Made this for our dessert using pears. Served with some whipped cream and a scoop of ice cream. Am looking forward to more tomorrow :) A 'keeper' for sure for us :)


The little cutie here is Martha, the sweet lady I was blessed to have worked with for two years. Martha passed away on 12/3/08. Martha and I would ride endlessly during the holidays, and she would sing carols and laugh and just enjoy it so much. I know this holiday season, she will be with her brother, son and mother and finally be "home". Martha, I still love you more. ******* I'm a simple girl, born of good stock. I'm the mamma of two spoiled tuxedo cats: Beauregard and Patches (the one who's been drinking eggnog). They love cuddling together, and this picture is taken on my hall steps. I'm a firm believer in LOA. I need to get more dedicated to daily practice. Below is a film that explains it, and is wonderful. I highly recommend it. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* This is Beau enjoying his computer. He's quite good at deleting messages, making the desktop disappear (as is his brother). Their path to the window is over my keyboard. <IMG SRC=""> This is Patches, planning his strategy to keep me awake, but cuddling his sock baby and trying to be cute to throw me off. <IMG SRC=""> Beau works a long week. He's relaxing finally, after a beer. <IMG SRC="">mnhj BTW, "mnhj" means "I just walked across our keyboard once again and left you a present." ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ I'm trying to figure out my new rating system. As of 10/1/06, this is how I'll rate recipes. I will be changing some previous reviews. 5*~~Outstanding recipe--the best of the best here. 4*~~Something I find delicious; will make often; would serve to guests. 3*~~Something I might fix again; enjoyed; needed something added before I try again 2*~~Something I could finish, but would never try again, regardless of additions or subtractions 1*~~Could not finish it; would not even make possums suffer with this (I haven't found many of these--only one of my own that I grabbed from the internet!!) <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="">
