"My grandmother Hazel made her wonderful Lazy Day Cake to enjoy with a great cup of coffee and splendid conversation. I am sure if she were still living, she would have agreed, that adding DC Coffee's Hazelnut Creme Coffee to her recipe is very delicious ! In her memory....I submit this entry. (to brew strong coffee, use 1/2 the water you normally would use)"
