I started making this coffee cake many years ago when my children were young and now I make it for my grandchildren. Christmas morning,very early I would prepare it,very easy, and most times before it came out of the oven my girls were up checking on Santa’s goodies and eating this wonderful confection. Now my daughters prepare it for their children and the tradition lives on. Thank you.
Fun to hear Donna, thank you!!
Our Christmas mornings have also began with this wonderful coffee cake …my husband can’t imagine Christmas morning without it! When our daughters married we had to adjust many of our Christmas traditions, but Christmas Coffee Cake for breakfast is one tradition that has stayed!
How wonderful, traditions really do make it Christmas!
My son and I made this every year starting when he was 8 years old. On Christmas Eve we gave all of my siblings one to take home to have on Christmas morning. John is now 28 and we usually are lucky enough to have all three boys and their families home on Christmas morning for Coffee Cake, eggs and fresh oj (we live in So. California). It is one of many recipes and traditions I have adopted from your wonderful collection. Thank you.
Love that story . . .
What a delicious treat for Christmas morning breakfast!
saw this a while ago, made it with dried cranberries…….soooo good! felt like I was sharing it with you!
I’ve made this in the past, everybody loves it! Just got the idea to make it for my gift to the Bunko exchange, wrapped up in a tea towel – I think it would be the right size, right color, don’t have to exchange it & doesn’t require storage!! Thanks for reminding me! xoxox
Someone will love that! Good idea!
My roommate had your book containing this recipe 20 years ago and I have been making it ever since. It IS Christmas morning to me and to my whole family! Thanks for sharing it with all of us!
How wonderful to hear that Kelly! When you have cake this year, be sure to tell everyone Merry Christmas from me!
For over 20 years this coffee cake has been a holiday tradition. The family LOVES it. Now I make two, one for breakfast, the other for Christmas tea. Thank you for the wonderful memories!
Note: Christmas breakfast also includes your ‘Fresh Fruit Salad’ – simply delicious!!
Nice of you to say so Jennifer! xoxo Merry Christmas!
