"Sunny Boy" Coffee Cake With Caramel Topping

“When I was a kid I found this among Mom's recipes that she had collected or clipped from magazines. I tried it then and really enjoyed it. It was the only way I would eat my "Sunny Boy cereal" at that age. Sunny Boy cereal is like Red River cereal if I am right. We used to call it bird seed cereal.”
