Grandma Jessie Walker's Coffee Cake


This was so good I forgot to take a picture of it till the plate was empty. Even better--I have a photo of the recipe in my Grandma Walker's handwriting and shorthand, from a notebook so old it is falling apart. I think this is the coffee cake I remember as my mom's standard whenever we had guests or special events, like a holiday morning casual brunch. Easy, fast, and delicious....
