Four generations of my family have enjoyed my Aunt Norma’s Coffee Cake, and now my guests get to enjoy it, too.  When six guests recently asked about my Aunt Norma and discovered that they didn’t live far from her in New Jersey, they were determined to visit her and thank her in person for this incredibly moist Sunday breakfast treat.
