Personal Notes:
Mom remembers Grandma Gelineau bringing this warm coffee cake to her in the hospital after she delivered her first child, Kathy in Sept. 1954. Grandma was a nurse and was just beginning her shift, that means she had to make this before leaving for work. Do you think this could be the reason for the 20 Minute Coffee Cake? Hmmm
