If you grew up in Los Angeles, you fondly remember the coffee cake. One of my fondest memories was the smell and taste of the coffee cake I order every day. The recipe below is the recipe that the Los Angeles School District “Old-Fashion Crumb Cake” published in the Los Angeles Times on July 28, 2014.
