Grandma’s Coffee Cake

Sharing is caring!

This weekend we’ve been enjoying my Grandma’s Coffee Cake.  My oldest daughter and I made one on Friday afternoon so we could nibble on it all weekend long.  This easy coffee cake has nutmeg as it’s predominate flavor, which I think pairs perfectly with any hot drink.
