I don't understand giving 5 stars for a recipe that you end up changing, so I am rating this as "ok". I was hunting for a coffee cake recipe that resembled the ones from my youth, and gave this one a shot. I followed the recipe exactly, and I liked the taste of the final product, but found the texture to be quite thick, bordering on heavy. I am used to coffee cakes being rather light. In addition, it rose while baking SO much that the top was dark brown before the middle was baked sufficiently - and this was with my oven being precisely calibrated for temp and having the rack directly in the middle. I understand what the recipe is trying to accomplish, but I am looking for lighter recipe, and this one seemed a bit heavy handed.
