I have fond memories of visiting my grandmother and coming face to face with this cake. This recipe combines a delicious coffee cake with a creamy nutmeg sauce that really complements it!
This dish required a fair amount of deciphering. For example, the original recipe called for 2 eggs of grease for the cake.
The sauce needs a consistent temperature to thicken reliably. If you can get an even flame then this will be no problem. However, for electric ranges I recommend using a cast iron or steel saucepan to compensate for the on-and-off cycle of the heating element.
