My family and friends love this recipe! I have made this coffeecake several times over the past five years and every time, it turns out beautifully. Moist and delicious!
I made this into two loaf pans rather than one 13x9. The cooking time turned into 55 minutes which any loaf typically does. The only complaints I heard was that there wasn't enough "cake" in the coffee cake and that it might be a little too sweet. Still think it was a good recipe. :)
I found this coffee cake to be very, very dry. Wouldn't make again unless I attempted to change it to make it more moist.
I am a seventeen year old amatuer baker, and I made this coffee cake for my mother to take to her office for a brunch. Everyone loved it -- she just asked me to email her the recipe for her to share! The only change I made was to add a teaspoon of vanilla, and it cooked it almost exactly 25 minutes for me (a tiny bit over). Great recipe!
