Many years ago, I took my lunch to school everyday because I was such a fussy eater.  And everyday I ate the same thing,  tuna fish sandwich on white bread, a carton of milk which I purchased at school, celery sticks and a Drake's Coffee Cake or a Devil Dog.  I ate the same thing 5 days a week.  

So, that brings us to this post.   When I saw these coffee cakes on buttercreamfanatic I knew I had to try them.........Look at all those crumbles on top. This recipe is so close to the original "Drake's."  This is a keeper. They returned me to seventh grade lunch room!  I will be adding this recipe to my collection.  A big thank you to Nora for making and blogging about "Drake's" Coffee cakes.

This was before they were baked.   Love all that topping..................yummy


  1. These look absolutely delicious! I think I'll be able to swap out the "regular" white & brown sugars for brown & white Splenda for a sugar-free version. Thanks so much for sharing!!

  2. Oh my goodness, you did a wonderful job with these! I wish I could have tried one! They really look incredible. Thank you again so much for welcoming this recipe into your kitchen and for sharing it with your readers. Have a wonderful evening!

  3. I never heard of these, but they look good! Also, tuna sandwiches are yummy. Not sure I'd eat them everyday though :P
