Sandy has blown on by us and we're still here. Lost power most of last night, but back up and running this morning. Hope all of you stay safe! Me? I'm going to have another hot cup of coffee and some of Calene's Coffee bread.

Carlene Dater’s Swedish Coffee Bread

Cream together, ½ cup butter and 11/4 cups sugar -
Add 2 beaten eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla. Mix well.
Add 2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder and ½ tsp. Baking soda. Mix in flour to form batter.

In a separate bowl, mix ½ cup chopped walnuts, 2 tsp. Sugar and ½ tsp. Cinnamon.

Put half the batter in a greased Angel food cake pan or, anyway a pan with a hole in the middle.

Sprinkle half the nut mixture on batter in pan. Add remaining dough then add the rest of the sugar/nut/cinnamon mixture on top. Bake one hour in 350-F or 177-C degree oven. Yummy.

But murder happens and  Callie’s uncle is suspect #1. His employees act suspicious and Callie has a reputation to maintain as a snoop. The only other plus is that one of the police detectives is a charmer …


  1. Glad to hear you made it through the storm okay!

  2. Me too! Glad you're all safe. Thanks for posting this recipe! Everyone who tries it, loves it.

  3. WOW, Arline, after a friend from Ocean City, MD posted pics of the damage on Twitter... I really did not expect to see a post from you today. Hooray! So very delighted to know you made it through "Savage Sandy" and are safe and sound.
