Delicious Dish Tuesday... Gram's Coffee Cake

When I was younger my Gram used to make the most delicious coffee cake whenever we were visiting.  I remember as a kid getting up early so that I could help her bake it.  I also remember that we always had to make more than one because everyone loved it so much.  This past weekend we had friends spend the night at our apartment, so on Sunday morning when I woke up I decided that it was time to bring back Gram's recipe because a) who doesn't love coffee cake on Sunday mornings? And b) I don't think I had ever made this for M in all the years we have been together, so it seemed like a perfect breakfast idea.

This is my Gram and me at my bridal shower in September 2013
So this week for Delicious Dish Tuesday, where I am linking up with Mary from Eat, Drink and Be Mary, Alesha at Full Time Mama, and Amanda at Coping with Frugality, I am going to share with you my Gram's Coffee Cake Recipe!

  1. So funny you'd share a recipe for this; I was reading a book the other night and in it the main character was making coffee cake. I decided it was high time I found a good recipe and made some myself. Here I go! :) Looks delicious! Thanks so much for sharing with us at Delicious Dish Tuesday!
