I guess this one qualifies more as a breakfast recipe than anything else! I often serve it as a type of coffee cake more than anything else. I have my dad to thank for this one. I've no idea where he came up with it. But it's so simple and quick to throw together!! And yet it looks really impressive and people would never guess it's so easy!! Even your kids can make this one with a bit of supervision, and they'll be so proud of their results!! I actually think this may be one of the first things dad taught us to bake. He started teaching us how to cook and bake when we were 5 years old!! I won't tell you how many years ago that was!!LOL
