This coffee cake is very moist and flavorful. I used 1/4 cup pecans and would actually bump it up to 1/2 cup next time. I also used 1 cup all purpose flour and 1/4 cup whole wheat flour. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. The good thing about this recipe is that I found it easy to make and I had all of the ingredients on hand. It's a solid everyday coffee cake, but nothing special. Also, not all of the cake came out of the pan when I inverted it, so I had to "patch" a portion of the edge on one side. I would definitely make it again.
We love this coffee cake recipe. It is so moist and flavorful...not dry like many other coffee cake recipes. We have made this for Christmas gifts for friends and we have taken it to holiday brunches. Everyone raves about it and wants the recipe.
My son volunteered me to bring a coffee cake to school for Teacher Appreciation Day and I decided to make this one since I had all the ingredients on hand. It got excellent reviews from everyone, was very moist and just the right sweetness.
Taste good, but nothing special. Easy to make. I made it because of the good reviews and I had all the ingredients on hand. I've made CL pumpkin muffins that I like better. I wouldn't make again.
