    Very good tasting, moist cake even though I overbaked it by 30 minutes. I added a pinch of salt since I used unsalted butter but will add a little more the next time.

    Moist flavorful pound cake, with the enticing flavors of a coffee cake. YUM!

    I baked according to directions (one and a half hours). It was NOT done. IF you make this, be sure to overbake by about 1/2 hour or you will be wasting these expensive ingredients. We had to throw it out.

    No where in the recipe does the 1 cup of finely chopped pecans get added to the cake batter. Step 1 indicates adding 3/4 cup pecans to the streusel. Step 2 calls to toast 1 cup of pecans, step 5 re-adds pecans to the streusel. Can someone clarify if pecans are to be added to the batter?

    This recipe is simply outstanding! I did it for friends ... with no left-overs, and many requests for the recipe. All those nuts! YUM!- For those people who found it wasn't done in the time suggested, have your oven's thermometer checked. The directions also say to use a long wooden pick to check doneness.

    not a real rating- A tube pan is a Bundt pan (I did not know either, so Iooked it up).The hole in the center makes it a tube pan ( also called a chimney). It helps tall cakes cook in the middle. Hope it helps!

    Lots and lots of streusel!! Note: step 5 asks you to mix the toasted pecans brown sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle it over half of the batter that has been "poured" into the tube pan. I baked for an hour and 30 min using an oven thermometer as my oven is a bit off calibration- turned out great!

    I've made this cake over and over again with no problems. If you bake a lot you know your ovens speed of baking. This cake gets rave reviews every time I make it. I've never been disappointed with a SL recipe.

    any substitute for sour cream?

    Actually a flute pan looks similar to a bundt pan, but you can remove the outside ring and leave the base in place under the cake, much like a springform pan. A bundt pan is all one piece, and you have to turn the cake upside down to remove it from the mold. So, yes, if you wanted to bake this in a bundt pan, you would have to put the topping in first.

    Cajun...how about fat-free greek yogurt instead of sour cream

    This is not a review, but a question. I don't have a tube pan, can I bake in a bundt cake pan, and if I do, should I put the streusel on the bottome of the pan, so it will on the top of the coffee cake? Linda

    The cake itself was good however the streusel topping was too much ... I think if I baked this again I would cut back on the topping maybe try adding diced apple to the filling

    Have this cake baking in the oven now....I forgot the cinnamon and brown sugar because I was reading the instructions it wasnt listed there only in the ingredients and I didnt notice it again until it went in the oven. I left the nuts , but I love poundcake so I'm still expecting this to be delicious even though I forgot those 2 things....fingers crossed!

    This is wonderful! A great combination of Pound Cake and Coffee Cake. To Neetero: The recipe would have probably been clearer if it had been written so that you prepared a Pecan Streusel, the Pound Cake Batter AND a PECAN FILLING. The 1 cup of pecans, the 1/4 cup of brown sugar and the 1 1/2 tsp of cinnamon become the PECAN FILLING and not part of the streusel.

    Absolutely delicious. Did not change anything, The filling and streusel is a lot but I did not reduce it. I am glad I did not. The pound cake is lighter than I thought it would be. I will make it again.
