It's more of cake-coffeecake, you get half-half, best of both worlds. It goes GREAT with coffee. I made it for my boyfriend's birthday at work. Some of co-workers admitted they've had FOUR servings of it. Next time I will try adding cinnamon for extra flavor kick, otherwise, it's so good the way it is! I used pecans instead of walnuts, after all I'm a Texan. :)

i tried this cake hoping that it would be a great birthday cake, but it turns out to be more like a coffee cake, something you would have for breakfast, not for dessert. i was extremely dissapointed. although it was a quick and easy cake, i don't reccommend it for a dessert cake.

Everbody just loved this cake, it is so moist. It's more like a coffee cake, I guess you could drizzle it with some icing. Very good cake.

My family loved it, my nephew said "he was eating a piece of heaven". I followed the recipe exactly and it was great. Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe.

Wonderful -go to recipe. I doubled the crumb part, just because we love a dense crumb top. To make this cake quicker; I skipped the melting of the chocolate and just added the chips to the batter. It does have to cook 10 min longer than the 30 minutes it calls for. It has a nice coffee cake density with some moisture. Don't expect a birthday cake moisture.

I was craving some kind of crumb cake. I saw this recipe and thought I'd give it a try. It turned out great, loved the flavor and texture. I'd give it a 5 star if my husband loved it as much as me.

I was not very pleased with the crumb topping. Taste overall was ok, will bake again. However, the receipe calls for 1/2 cup of milk for the cake, but I had to use 1 full cup of milk
