Mrs. Mac's Coffee Cake

Mrs. Mac's Coffee Cake

From Elaine Maxwell

This recipe was in my late mother-in-law's recipe box, and we enjoyed this wonderful cake for several years. As far as we know, it originated back in the early 1800's. Mrs. Mac was the mother of my mother-in-law's best friend, Betsy Mac. Her mother was given the recipe from her mother,who got it from her mother. I keep extra copies around because, without a doubt, someone will ask for them. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do.
