Tasty Tuesday: Easy Coffee Cake

This recipe comes from our wonderful mother-in-law, complete with a cute intro!

I ate this at a baby shower this weekend and I really wanted to take the leftovers home but didn’t want to embarrass myself by asking the total stranger that brought it. But, I spent the next 3 days trying to get the recipe. It is totally rich and full of calories that none of us want to ingest but if you have company coming or a church thing to bake for or if you want to do like me …fix it for myself so I can eat it by myself and not share with anyone, then here you go. It is soooo yummy!
