What the cake looks like

This coffee cake is a recipe from my great great grandparents. The recipe comes from Hungary and the recipe was something that they decided to bring on the boat when they immigrated to America from Hungary in the early 1900’s. It is a dry cake made with special ingredients like sour cream. My family and I make the cake for family gatherings/holidays or once in a while we just make it for a dessert. We usually eat this cake for Jewish holidays such as Rosh Ashana and Yom Kippur, sometimes if we are seeing our cousins we will make it as well. The cake is specifically from my dad’s side and his great grandparents, it has been passed down and eaten from everyone on my dad’s side of the family for many years. The recipe has also been passed down to me from my dad and I will continue to make it for the rest of my life. This is important to our family because it has been with our family for a very long time and everyone really likes it. It’s also special to our family and me because my dad ate this exact same cake as a kid, my grandparents ate this exact same cake and my other relatives have also eaten the cake a long time ago. The cake is also special because it represents our Jewish heritage and culture when we make it for holidays.
