German Coffee Cake
From some cookbook I borrowed from the library 15-20 years ago. I'm unsure what makes this 'German' -- the soured milk? Very tasty cake, though. Flavorful but not too sweet. Use my oatmeal streusel topping or whatever floats your boat. Also try other spices -- anything pumpkin/apple pie would be good; cinnamon, nutmeg, mace, clove, cardamom.
