This delicious coffee cake has hidden layers of cinnamon and pecans- and a yummy cream cheese frosting!
My mom used to make this delicious coffee cake whenever my grandparents (her mom and dad) would come to visit. I have great memories of sitting around the table having this with all of them and listening to all the “grown-up” talk. They were from Wisconsin, so a visit always meant a couple of days with us in Michigan. I’d get up early and take a long walk with grandpa and our overweight basset hound Max before breakfast, and return to a kitchen table full of family, laughter, and this coffee cake.
My grandparents lived very active and adventurous lives until they left us for heaven several years ago.
Mom, as those of you who keep up with this blog know, left us for heaven about a year and a half ago.
A friend sent me an article last week about 8 ways to celebrate Mother’s Day if your mom is in heaven. They were great ideas, and the very 1st one was, “Make her favorite recipe”. I think her favorite recipe was my grandma’s recipe for German Sauerbraten, but since desserts are my specialty, I decided on this coffeecake as my “remembering mom” recipe.
As my kitchen filled up with the smell of this baking, it made me smile. And remember.
Here’s how to make it: (printable recipe)
My thoughts: Warm this up for a few seconds in the microwave before serving and YUM!!! You can keep this cake in an airtight container in the fridge and serve it for several days. I hope your family enjoys this recipe as much as ours did over the years!! ~r
Whether you are celebrating your mom in person, or thanking God for wonderful memories of her today, Happy Mother’s Day to you and to your family!
This one’s for you mom!

No, seriously…you have to try that 1st one…best. cake. ever. 🙂
Filled with cream and topped with rich chocolate, these cupcakes capture all the delicious flavor of a Boston Cream Pie in a single-serving form! Easy and soooo yummy!
I’ve never understood why they call it a pie, when it is SO obviously a cake, but Boston Cream Pie is one of my favorite desserts. There’s something about that filling that makes it so moist and flavorful!
These little creations are as easy as can be because they use a cake mix and instant pudding. Easy and delicious!!
Here’s how we made them: (printable recipe)
My thoughts: These really are delicious… I try to only “taste” my treats and give the rest away, but you better believe I finished this little cupcake…with a cup of coffee. Yum! I hope you get a chance to try them too! ~r
