Well this is the recipe you have been waiting for! This may be the recipe of the year. Peggy made this coffee cake for Rob's 50th birthday and he took it to the party to share with the family. Like the was GONE in 60 seconds. Everyone in our family wanted the ultimate coffee cake recipe, we talked about it on the show and so many of you have called in to share a similar story at your house that we knew this was going to be one of our all time favorites!
