This is a very good coffee cake, but I think it stops short of being great. That being said, I would make it again, because it's sure to be a crowd pleaser. I did take the advice of other reviewers and cut down the butter to one stick (1/2 c.) rather than 2/3 c., which seemed excessive and like it would make the filling sink to the bottom. I had no issues with that happening. This is very sweet, between the cake mix, the sugar in the streusel, and the drizzled glaze. I tried a slice w/out the glaze and it seemed to need a certain something, so I used the glaze...that made it quite a bit sweeter. I am bringing this to work for a Christmas surprise, and I am sure my coworkers will love it. The graham makes for an unusual, though good, change in your regular coffee cake. Oh, by the way, 1/ 1/3 cups of graham crumbs is 1 sleeve of crackers (9 whole crackers).
