A friend is coming over this morning to see the garden, so I thought I would make us a little treat to have with a cup of coffee as we meander the garden. My favorite coffee cake is Merk's Coffee Cake, a vintage recipe from the first Los Angeles Times Cookbook.
It is so easy to make and is that perfect combination: brown sugar, nuts, cinnamon and
butter ~ yum! The addition of sour cream in the batter gives a very light texture.
This makes a nice size cake and will stay fresh for several days...it even seems to improve with age.
Some things never seem to get old ~ Enjoy!
