Want something homemade for the family that's quick and easy, and delicious too? Try this coffee cake recipe next weekend and see if your family doesn't give you the rest of the day off! Well, ok, THAT probably won't happen. But, it IS good, and it IS quick.
This recipe is from my 8th grade Home Economics class.... yep, I'm THAT old. My guess -- it's been a long time since schools have taught Home Economics.
I consider this a WASTE NOTes recipe because the ingredients are simple enough that everyone should have them in the pantry. I doubt you will need to make any special grocery purchases for this recipe.

There! Now can a weekend breakfast recipe get any easier than this??! If you decide to give it a try, let me know what you think - if you make any alterations to the recipe, I'd love to know. Right off the bat, I would say you could add chopped walnuts to the topping mix... if you like nuts.
Me, I prefer my coffee cake nutless. :-)
