With Easter morning coming, coffee cake seemed just the right recipe to share. This particular recipe is, once again, from Grandma's recipe box.

It's such a delicious coffee cake, but the batter will try the patience getting it to smooth out in the pan. It's definitely worth the effort, though, with its sweet, cinnamon smell wafting through the house and a taste of heaven when it's done.

It makes enough that you could even take this dish to a family get together. Enjoy!
