Both my bundt pan and my blog have been needing a little love lately. One of my New Year’s resolutions was to make posting more of a priority. However, it’s already January 16th, and this is my first post of 2013. So let’s start 2013 blogging off with a bundt—my most underused baking pan. Even the spring-form gets more love.
If you think my photographs are improving it’s because for my birthday (today) I was gifted a Canon Speedlite 430EX II Flash by my sous chef! Pretty nice, right!
This coffee cake is a true family classic. My mother has been making this dessert/breakfast as long as I can remember. It’s easy, pretty, and of course, delicious! When I moved into my first apartment 7 years ago, my mother put together a book of family recipes, this cake being one of them, and I’m happy today to share it with all of you!
For the story behind the name “Tennis Camp Coffee Cake,” see my dad’s notes below.
“Before you were born, we attended tennis camp that was located at Mt. Holyoke College. They served us three meals a day in the college’s alumni housing. There was a chef that made our meals and she made this coffee cake. We asked for the recipe for this and thereafter, named it the ‘Tennis Camp Coffee Cake.’ ”
