Personal Notes:
Every Christmas morning, I can remember waking up to the smell of cinnamon in the air. After the excitement of seeing our goodies from Santa, our family would enjoy a yummy, warm slice of my Aunt Effie's coffee cake recipe. Mom would get up early and make this wonderful taste sensation every Christmas morning while she was preparing the turkey for our celebration feast. To this day, I still love the taste of that wonderful coffee cake on Christmas morning.
