The Gefter Family Coffee Cake Recipe Notes

This is a great dessert for serving to a large group of people. It is made in a lasagna pan and you can cut it into any size wedges that you want. It was my mother's recipe and both of my daughters make it for pot luck suppers and religious dinners.

Preparation Instructions

Cream the butter and sugar together. Next, add the eggs one at a time, and combine. Add the orange juice and combine. Add the vanilla and mix.

Sift the flour with the salt and baking powder. Add this to the rest of the ingredients. The batter will be thick.

Spread 2/3 of the batter on the bottom of a long lasagna pan. Put the pie filling on top of the batter, and spread the remaining batter across the top in a random pattern.

Sprinkle the whole top with a mix of cinnamon and sugar.

Bake in 350 degree oven for 15 minutes. Then lower the heat to 325 degrees and bake for 30 minutes more.

Serve and enjoy!

Helpful Hints

Musselman's pie filling works really well.
