  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

"This is a yummy coffee cake. I like to add some blanched or slivered almonds to the mixture that is to be sprinkled on top of the cake."

"I make 1.5 times the dough amount, so it is easier to spread. I am going to try it with cranberries next and see how that goes. It isn't too sweet and is wonderful warm."
