My sister in law brought this home from her Easter weekend in the northern part of Mississippi. She was told it was called a dream cake. It was like a coffee cake with a layer of brown sugar and pecan in the middle and topped with the same mixture with hints of cinnamon. Not dense at all and SO yummy. I’ve been thinking about it after I ate my slice. Lol
