Mimi’s Coffee Cake

Mimi was given this delightful Coffee Cake recipe from a friend in Germany.  I have no doubt she made it for years before I knew her - bringing this delicious treat to so many people.  After I met Mike, I remember Mimi making this incredible treat for new neighbors, visitors at Ronald McDonald House, and dropping it off at Mike's workplace, Cindy's WTA offices and Pam's work too!  Always bringing smiles!  Give it a try - you'll love it!
