Spanish Coffee Cake and more

I didn't make the posting of the cake for Tuesday's meme. But I thought I would go ahead and post it today.

I got this recipe years ago from a dear friend, Sharron Maloyed. In my teen years I spent a lot of time with her and her family (those of you who know me are chuckling right now!). Sharron is a pastor's wife and a wonderful cook! This recipe has been one of our family favorites. I have some pictures to share featuring this cake....

This is the first time Makenzi helped Mamaw in the kitchen.

I had dreamed of this day... baking and creating with my grand-babies!

I have cookbooks with lots of great kid friendly recipes and presentation ideas. I am looking forward to breaking those out in a year or so when she will really enjoy them.

Here is the finished product. It tastes like a wonderful cinnamony cake donut! I like Cool Whip on mine, but some like it just plain... either way it is yummy!

Here's the recipe so you can enjoy its yumminess, too!

Awww... what a sweet little helper you have!

I have a good coffee cake recipe, too... that I've made over the years. I've never tried it with whipped cream on it, though. I bet that would be yummy!
