Lemon Coffee Cake

One of my best friends' lives in Illinois, we lived there for 5 years before our last move to Michigan.
We talked several times a week and one day he helped me brainstorm recipe ideas. The idea of ​​a lemon coffee cake appeared, so I wrote it on the sticky note I had on my computer.

I have several other recipes that I'm working on, so I can't get them right away. But after he mentioned it several times, I knew it needed to happen. I like lemon, and I like coffee cakes.
