Also, do you remember Baker Boy it was like a little loaf coffee cake 
thin sliced with cinnamon and nuts swirled through it.

Hi Audrey,

I have never heard of "Baker Boy". Was that another Van de Kamp's product?

The Baker Boy was another brand, just one that I remember from my childhood.† 
The closest thing I have found to it is Harry & Davidís Cinnamon Swirl.

Hi Audrey,

† There is a "Baker Boy" company based in North Dakota that specializes in baked goods and has been in business since 1955. They are still in business, but I didn't find a coffee cake among their current offerings. See: Baker Boy

If that's not the same company, then I need more information to track it down. I can't find anything about a coffee cake associated with the name "Baker Boy."

Could be.† The loaf was approximately 6Ē x 4Ē x 2Ē cellophane type wrapping 
and sold in the grocery stores.† I have always lived in California.†I think 
it even came in two varieties.

Hi Audrey,

What was the pastry called? I don't mean the brand "Baker Boy", I mean the name of the product, like "coffee cake" or "breakfast pastry", etc. What was printed on the wrapper as a descriptive name for what was inside?

I honestly donít know.† My mom just called it Bakery Boy, itís the only 
thing of that brand that I remember eating.

I would think pecan loaf or cinnamon swirl.

Hi Audrey,

I am unable to find anything at all about this with the information that we have. I'll post this for reader input.

Thanks for trying.†I figured it was a long shot.†The Harry & Davidís 
cinnamon swirl is fairly close in taste.

Hi Audrey,

Sorry, no luck with the Harry & David's Cinnamon Swirl recipe.
