Moravian Coffee Cake
Made and sold by Hess Department Store bakery in Allentown, PA


Hello Rick,

"Moravian Coffee Cake" is also called "Moravian Sugar Cake" or "cinnamon flop."

I could not find a recipe with any connection to Hess Department Store, but the recipes on these sites are connected to Pennsylvania Dutch country, as is the cake itself:

Cinnamon Flop Coffee Cake

Cinnamon Flop


Thank you so much. 
As I recall, the recipe from the Cookie Scoop looks like what I remember.
