Overnight Coffee Cake

 Overnight Coffee Cake
It's so convenient to mix up this old-fashioned breakfast treat the night before and bake it fresh the morning you serve it. We like the cake's light texture and nutty brown sugar topping spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg. -Patricia Throlson, Clear Lake, Minnesota.
