I first tasted this incredible coffee cake when a kind neighbor brought it by. It was so good, my brother-in-law tried hiding it from us so he wouldn’t have to share. —Arlene Isaac, Crooked Creek, Alberta

"Delicious! I substituted a butter pecan cake mix for the white, and it was yummy. I wondered if the glaze could use a little vanilla when I taste tested it before putting it on, but I didn't notice it at all after it was on. I may try it next time."
