So as you know I was not feeling well on New Years Day. I wish it was about over indulging and eating or drinking to much but I got the flu and I hate being sick more than I hate negativity and people who lie. Enough about that though!

So as I mentioned before I made a fabulous Coffee cake for New Years Eve with some of my leftovers that I had from my Traditional Holiday Raspberry Trifle.  So this is what I had leftover bag of 4 0z of Slivered Almonds A Bag of Frozen Raspberries about 2 cups of Sorghum flour so I thought to myself that because tomorrow is a holiday and all and I want to relax I am going to make a Crunchy and Sweet Breakfast Cake.
