I'd be interested in experimenting to find a way to make the presentation of this coffee cake more appealing, but -- other than that -- we absolutely loved this recipe. It was very easy to put together and completely unfussy. Although, I did have to make two substitutions: I've NEVER been able to find non-fat buttermilk, so I used reduced fat buttermilk; and -- as a rule -- I do not use fat free cream cheese (or sour cream) for anything, so I used neufchatel. The cake is not too sweet and the nuttiness of the pecans really gets to shine. Goes excellent with a cup of coffee with dash of frangelico or amaretto.
