This is an adapted nondairy nut-free version of a recipe from a late patient of mine from many years ago, Mrs. JB, who was a kind, sweet, nurturing Bubby to her adoring family.  I always think of her when I bake this cake.  In addition to being called Bubby B’s Coffee Cake, it also became known as the Anniversary Cake when I was able to help “save” my friend BF on one July 1 many years ago when he did not have a gift in hand for his very special wife until I pulled one of these out of the freezer.

Ingredients:

1 tsp. baking soda
