I've been making this for many years and have no idea where I picked it up. What I know for sure is that it's always been a hit when I've made it for company, pot lucks and employee events. The flavors delightful and it's an interesting change from the tried-and-true breakfast items. —Jantastic

Sounds so yummy! I've been wanting to make a similar recipe for years. It's in my Gold Medal cookbook (1979) and they call it Danish Puff. Thanks for the recipe! On my to do list!
