I’ve been making this coffee cake for more than twenty years so it feels like MY coffee cake but really it isn’t. It is from one of my favorite cookbooks, Cafe Beaujolais by Margaret Fox and John Bear (who eats there a lot), which is probably out of print now but cheap, used copies are around.

Note to Frances: I make it without nuts because some people I live with don’t care for them mixed in with other things but you can try it both ways and see for yourself. And as you probably noticed I also always bake mine in a round 8 or 9-inch cake pan.

  1. Ah! We will make it immediately. Well, maybe tomorrow. This morning was blueberry muffins, which we compared to your blueberry cake (they were not quite as good, but close). I can’t wait to show Frances, who is MOST definitely in the no-nut camp.
