I hope that’s not the case for you. I hope you’re safe and happy in the embrace of family or friends, that you’ve got a good and safe plan for celebrating, that maybe you’ll look around in the fridge and be able to put

    My Grandmother Made This Coffee Cake Every Christmas Morning for 60 Years

    In my memories of Christmas in Alabama, of smacking my brothers in the head with cardboard wrapping-paper tubes while playing our new Xbox games, there’s always a half-eaten plate of my grandmother’s orange butter coffee cake, stray pecans clinging to the glaze.
