Kate Smith Coffee Cake Recipe

Publisher Photo
I lived in an orphanage 50 years ago and helped out in the kitchen, Back then, I often made this wonderful coffee cake, dutifully following the recipe in the cookbook they used in that kitchen. Years later, when I saw Kate Smith on television, I realized that I had been using her cookbook to make this coffee cake. I was delighted to know I had been using one of Kate's favorite recipes!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 4, 2008

"I've been making this delicious old-fashioned coffee cake for over ten years now, since I found it in Reminisce magazine. My mother says it is very similar to one that her mother made. Maybe she got her recipe from Kate Smith's original cookbook -- the timing would be about right."
