Old-Fashioned Coffee Cake from Deep South Dish: Home-Style Southern Recipes + Giveaway


Recently I was invited to review this awesome cookbook Deep South Dish: Home-Style Southern Recipes by my friend, Mary, at Deep South Dish. I was happy to be invited and couldn't wait to "dig in" to her great cookbook.

As said about Mary and her cookbook on Amazon: "Mary Foreman loves to share her Home-Style Southern Recipes - like her mother and grandmother used to make. A popular food blogger and recipe developer, Mary gets millions of unique page views per year to her blog Deepsouthdish.com. She calls on her heritage of good cooking for recipes that all have one thing in common - incredibly great taste! So pull up a chair, grab a glass of sweet tea, and join Mary in dishing up good ole southern recipes from the Deep South USA."

Having been a fan of hers forever, and a follower on her Facebook page, Best Southern Recipes of the Deep South, I knew this cookbook would be full of delicious recipes I'd want to try.

There were so many to choose from, but since my husband has a BIG sweet tooth, I was super-happy to see this recipe for Old Fashioned Coffee Cake. It was quick, easy to prepare, uses minimum ingredients, yet yields this soft, delicate coffee cake and glorious streusel topping. Oh yes, it's a keeper now in our house. This is one of those recipes you'll make over and over again ... it's that good.

I mean, really, how couldn't it be! Just look at the pictures ... it is amazing!
