Delicious Coffee Cake

Alright… we have officially changed the name from “Helping Hubbie” to “Real Men Cook.” 🙂 I think it conveys what the goal is, which is to help our “Real Men” learn how to “Cook”. {or add to what they already know} I really like it, so thank you to all of you who helped with the name change!

Todays recipe is actually really close to my husbands heart. It is a family recipe that his grandma use to make all the time and has been passed down to us! 🙂 I make it on occasion, mostly because there’s TONS of sugar. But whenever I do, people always want the recipe. {thanks grandma!}

My good friend Rachel has been asking me for a while to, “post that coffee cake recipe on the blog.” So here you go Rachel! Now, go make a warm cup of coffee or latte and start making this Delicious Coffee Cake. It is a great and easy coffee cake recipe for your man to have in his back pocket. Enjoy!

Men!! This is perfect to make for your wife on Mothers Day and prove that Real Men Cook! 🙂

How to Make Delicious Coffee Cake
