One of my near and dear friends passed away over the winter.
It was her wishes that we didn’t have a big funeral for her. She didn’t want people to look at her as she was lying motionless. She wanted people to celebrate her life. I decided that the best way to do that was to enjoy a memorial service of sorts during her favorite season, in the summer. I invited all of her friends and family and rented a small venue where we could all go and visit and talk about our most beloved memories of our dear lost love.
I made it a potluck because I knew that she wouldn’t want people spending a ton of money on her. I made a salad and some meatballs, but I wanted a dessert too. When I found this coffee cake on Just A Pinch, I knew it was going to match the event perfectly.
She would have loved it, and everyone that attended couldn’t stop raving about it. There was plenty to go around so most everyone that wanted some got a small sample. Next time I take this somewhere, I think I will take two pans though. Something tells me that I’m going to need it!
