My mother found this on one of Land'o'Lakes butter boxes a few years ago, and it is now a birthday and holiday tradition. It is a heavier batter, moister/denser texture that a regular coffee cake, but so tasty and more filling. Great with eggs and hot coffee on a quiet morning or for entertaining! Always get rave reviews. Thanks for posting online!

Just okay, it's a different type of batter, not like a cake, not like a muffin but more like a biscuit. Texture is terrible, only thing saving it from going in the trash is how much I spent baking it!
