Personal Notes:
This recipe came from a chef at a St. Paul, MN country club in 1961. Although it has been a holiday breakfast family favorite over the years, it tastes great any time of day. This is a great recipe for coffee cake - dense, moist, and really delicious. Once you get used to this, it's hard to eat other coffee cake.
