Crewsk, I hope you're feeling better. I made your overnight coffee cake this morning--it made the house smell so good! We'll be cutting into it in about 5 minutes so I'll let you know how it turned out. I thought DH was going to cry when I told him he couldn't have any because it was for a work breakfast! I might do it for C-mas morning. It would be easy to pop in the oven during unwrapping gifts.

Thanks PA & bucky!

PA, yes, please let me know how you like it. That's what we're having Christmas morning.

Bucky, I think it's a cross between a bug & not enough sleep for the past 2 weeks. Only 2 hours a night will catch up with you in a hurry. Thanks for the hug! :D

Crewsk, I just took my first bite and am swooning! It's so good. Very light and moist. Everyone was shocked it was prepped the night before. It can't get easier than this one--thanks again! :D

I've been struggling with sleep lately, too, so I can relate. I've been averaging 3-4 hours a night. I go through these phases. Woke up this morning with a horrendous migraine because of it. Hopefully I can catch up this weekend. Maybe you can get your kids to have a nap time this afternoon!

I'm glad everyone likes it! :D

I know that my daughter will take a nap & I'm praying my son will too. He only has a half day at school today so I'll be leaving in about an hour to go pick him up. I still have to get clothes washed & packed for them to spend the night with their nana & papa tonight while we go to hubby's work party then finish Christmas shopping. Maybe I'll have time to at least lay down for a little while.

Hey, Crewsk, we had talked about toasting the pecans for the coffee cake the other day, and I don't think I would. Since they're just sprinkled across the top, they have a nice toasted flavor and appearance just from baking. I'm afraid toasting them first would cause them to brown too much.

You are right, I didn't even think about that.
