Lovedlovedloved this cake. I added a few chopped pecans to the filling, cut the sugar in the cake by 1/4, and used plain yogurt. No need for frosting. Big change: made this the traditional way, i.e. creamed chilled butter and sugar together first, then added eggs and yogurt, finally mixing in dry ingredients. Perfect crumbly texture and we loved the filling. Hard not to eat too much!Read More
the grape nuts cereal and the coffee flavors were the things that intrigued me about this recipe and they were so wrong. The cake went in the trash after a few bites. It is a muffin-type recipe and can be made without beaters and the consistency is prima, so there are things about it that are good, but no to the cereal in the middle. It smelled great. I'll try it again with just cinnamon sugar in the middle, because of the consistency.
We loved this coffee cake because we love coffee. Super easy, too. The yogurt makes it rich & creamy. I did use half the butter & half the sugar & no icing & it is still delicious. I cooked it for about 35 min. and it was completely cooked with a little crunch on top. Love the grape nuts in it. Will def. make again!Read More

Most of the people in the office loved it. I think that you have to like coffee flavored items to be in love with this. The grape nuts give a great crunch to the middle. I didn't use the coffee in the glaze, I just used water and it was perfect. will make again, so simpleRead More

Just tried this recipe yesterday and it's definitely a keeper! I decreased the sugar in the topping by about 2 tbsp. and decreased the sugar in the batter by 1/4 cup. I didn't want to use the icing so I only sprinkled 2/3 of the cereal mix in between the batter layers and used the final 1/3 as a topping. Only had plain yogurt on hand, so I added 1 tsp of vanilla extract to the mix.Read More
