Here's a tasty coffee cake recipe that starts as a homemade mix. This only makes 2 cakes for our size family (in a 12x20 pan), but it makes 7-9x9 sizes.
It's not very healthy as is, but sub in some whole wheat flour, include some white bean and butternut squash puree and you can serve it with a little less guilt.
I love to have some of this mix in the freezer and Meggie is happy to whip up breakfast on Saturday mornings while Bryan and I snuggle in bed with all the little ones!
