Swedish Kringler Coffee Cake

You don’t know what you are missing if you haven’t had Swedish Kringler Coffee Cake. Some people call it kringle or kringa, whatever you call it, it is one of my favorites. My husband’s Danish Grandmother used to make this and it was always a treat when she did.

Almond extract and sliced almonds are available at [ad#Myspice Hyperlink].
