"Good to the last crumb!"

My sister loves coffee cake and I am always looking for a new and different recipe. She just loved this one with the chocolate and almond combo!!! It is now a brunch standard at our home.

Wowed Everyone!!

I made this for our Mom's Club playgroup, one with the chocolate and one without, and they gobbled them both up!! I will keep making it and even add it to our family cookbook!!

Eat one, Freeze one

I served one cake, and wrapped and froze the second one, WITHOUT the chocolate glaze. When ready to serve, I made and drizzled the remaining choc. bits.l Delicious!

Beautiful to look at

I made this recipe for the bake sale at my church bazaar. I happened to see one of the ladies who bought a cake and asked her to let me know how it was when I saw her again. She said it was really delicious! All I can say is that for something that comes out looking so professional, it is very easy to make. I'm looking forward to making another batch and keeping one for myself next time!
