This is a great treat for Sunday morning breakfast or a special brunch. A steaming cup of coffee along with this cake and you will be in Heaven. When I would wake up as a child, and smell this baking, it did not take me very long to get down the stairs to the kitchen. Back then it was a big glass of cold milk along with it, but now it is a hot cup of coffee. This cake is so light and crumbly, but moist like you wouldn’t believe. I just know y’all or gonna love it.
