McKenzie's Pride Coffee Cake

My family and I are old McKenzie customers.  I have searched the internet to the best of my ability 
looking for the recipe of the "McKenzie's Pride."  (coffee cake)  it was sold  in an 8 or 9"  round 
aluminum pan. 
There are many people who don't know what I'm talking about and I find that very odd since it was 
such a popular product of McKenzie's! 
You are our last hope..

Hello Patricia,

I cannot find any mention at all of this coffee cake except for this request, similar to yours:
J. writes from Metairie: "I was wondering if you have ever come across a recipe for McKenzie's Pride Coffee Cake...", which I found at: Exchange Alley

There is no other mention of "McKenzie's Pride" coffee cake at all on the Internet, that I can find.

In order to continue, I need a description of the cake. Was it the banana nut coffee cake with pecans? If not, then what was it like?

If I donít hear from you, I will have to drop the search.

No banana flavor at all.  Just the cinnamon and pecans I would say almost
like a giant cinnamon roll.  What a shame no one can find the recipe I
would love to have it.

There are several Facebook Pages for McKenzie's Bakery enthusiasts. See: McKenzie's Bakery
You might try posting your request on those pages.

To make the topping, in a small bowl, stir together the flour, 
sugars, and cinnamon. With a pastry blender or your fingertips, 
work the cold butter into the flour mixture until coarse crumbs 
form. Sprinkle the topping over the batter, followed by the pecans.

Bake until golden brown across the top, 35 to 40 minutes.
