Catholic Recipe: Maryknoll Coffee Cake
The following recipe for coffee cake is unique with Maryknoll. Its origin is lost in the mists of time, but it is believed that one of the very early Sisters brought it from her home.
Combine first 6 ingredients; set aside about 1/2 cup for topping. Combine remaining ingredients; stir into remaining flour mixture. Spoon into 2 well-greased 8-inch layer cake pans. Sprinkle reserved flour mixture evenly on top. Bake at 350° for 30 to 35 minutes. Cut in wedges to serve.Recipe Source: Cook's Blessings, The by Demetria Taylor, Random House, New York, 1965
