Our Famous Coffee Cake

This was Wendye’s mother’s coffee cake recipe and it was one of the first we tried at River Spruce Cabins.  As a kid, she used to fight with her cousins for the piece with the most “butter holes”. We hope you enjoy the recipe.  Subscribe to our blog, we’ll be posting more of the famous River Spruce muffin recipes in the future.
