Great Flavor,...Party in your MOUTH!!! I too was confused & didn't understand where to put the remaining 1/4 cup sugar or cinnamon - on top of the lemon filling or on top of the second layer of cake? So these are the changes I made to the recipe....instead of vegetable oil, I used organic Coconut oil, which solidifies under 70 degrees. This made it easy to spread the filling, but difficult to pour the remaining batter on top. Once I warmed it, (duh), it made it easier to spread. I replaced the remaining 1/4 cup sugar, with brown sugar, and made a mix of brown sugar, lemon zest, & cinnamon for the top of the cake. Husband Loved it!

I don't know what went wrong but the cake turned out really weird. It also smelled of eggs for some reason:((

This is tasty. I mixed the cinnamon in with the remaining sugar and sprinkled it all over the top. No need to reduce this amount as others have suggested as this amount nicely covers the cake. Also - for the lemon filling, just put a bunch of small dollops all over the top and then it is much easier to spread.

This is a very light and tasty cake. I wasn't sure about where to put the cinnamon and rest of the sugar. I left the cinnamon out and put the sugar on the very top. I didn't use all of the 1/4 cup of sugar however. The sugar baked on top also made the cake look nice. When I tried to put it on the wire rack it fell apart. I would recomend just leaving it in the pan to cool.

I love coffee cakes and this one is the best. My mom made it for Christmas breakfast and now I am going to try it. What a great, easy recipe.

This was good, but I think I'll make a few changes next time. From the directions, I didn't understand where to put the remaining 1/4 cup sugar or cinnamon - on top of the lemon filling or on top of the second layer of cake? So, next time, I'll omit entirely; add some lemon zest to the cake, and make a drizzle for the top with powdered sugar and lemon juice. That should kick up the lemon taste! I agree with the first reviewer - just dab the filling and spread the best you can.

Excellent coffee cake!! My husband loves lemon and gobbled it right up. The lemon pie filling was a little difficult to spread on the first layers. I just dabbed it and them spread it the best I could. It turned out fine. I will make this again!
