Jewish Coffee Cake

Merry Christmas Everyone!!

Today I would like to share a Christmas morning tradition with you all.  Every Christmas, my Mom makes Jewish Coffee Cake, a recipe that was passed down to her from her mom.  Sadly I never met my Grandmother Florence, but this coffee cake makes me smile and think fondly of the stories my mom shares of her.

I hope you have a fantastic day and enjoy your time with loved ones.
