Alchemy's 15 Days of Recipes - Best Coffee Cake Ever

The simple memories are the best.​ Today's recipe is from Shawna Pickinpaugh.


One of my most fond memories as a child is spending time with my Nana. She loved to play games. We spent hours playing cards. Our day consisted of waking up in the morning to play cards, eat breakfast, play, eat lunch, play, make coffee cake, play. One weekend we played 176 games of cards. So, here is the recipe for the Best Coffee Cake Ever. Of can play a few card games while it’s baking! - Shawna
