"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Saw this recipe in Better Homes and Gardens magazine, issue November 1987. They called it "Choose-Your-Fruit Coffee Cake". I baked it and brought it into work. Our marketing manager told me it was the best coffee cake he ever had. I made it with fresh raspberries. It's a wonderful coffee cake.
