If you omit the allspice, this is a very close approximation of a coffee cake (more Russian than German actually) that my grandmother used to make, and now I do. We use a thickened sour cream layer and a butter-sugar-flour crumble on top rather than the cinnamon...YUM. I bake them in pie plates - they freeze well and are good to keep on hand for company. Goes great with a strong coffee, Tasters Choice French Roast, for example. Mmm, brings back memories!
