“We received a lot of lemon curd from a friend from church a couple of years ago. We couldn't use it fast enough, and not wanting it to spoil, I made a coffee cake from a recipe that I found from one of my tried and true country church cookbooks. The recipe says to use a springform pan, but I prefer to use a fluted baking dish.”
