My mother managed to make said coffee cake for decades. Year after year, she would make several of these beauts, to be enjoyed as a family on Christmas morning while opening presents or to be given to friends and family as a Christmas present.

Beautiful, isn't it? Fully intact with no filling sticking out of the top or the edge, making the cake stick inside the pan.
The girls were amazed. They couldn't believe their eyes. And they were slightly disappointed. After all, unless the cake crumbles out of the pan, there are no crumbs or little pinches of filling to eat. Guess they will just have to wait until Christmas morning to see if it tastes as good as it looks.
