Not only was this easy to make it tastes wonderful! I appreciate the simple and uncomplicated tastes of this coffee cake. The cream cheese filling is what this cake is all about. Not too sweet but satisfying and perfect with a cup of coffee. I made half the recipe in a round deep dish pie pan and cooked for almost 40 minutes. I wish though I had taken it out 5 minutes sooner because my sides and bottom were just a smidge too done. The toothpick test for this cake is "ify" because the filling is wet and if you cook it till the toothpick comes out clean in my opinion that is just a little too long. Next time I will take it out when I feel the top set in the center, the filling should still set up fine because the heat of the cake will continue to cook it. The dough is very sticky and I found if I layed the dough in blobs and then pushed the blobs into place and into each other that worked best. Hubby gave it 5 stars too! I did add more nuts just because I like them.

This recipe wasn't as great as I hoped it would be. My bf liked it but I won't make it again... I've made other versions I liked much more. Thanks anyway. Maybe it just wasn't my cup of tea?

This coffee cake is absolutely delicious! I did however; change one ingredient. Instead of using 2 packages of cream cheese, I substituted one package of the equal amt. of ricotta cheese. A little lighter than 2 packages of cream cheese. Definitely a keeper!!

SOOO Good ! Had trouble spreading the sticky dough. My husband gave a really good tip: spread and shape the dough between 2 sheets of wax paper. Use the wax paper to transfer the dough into baking dish, peel off the wax paper.

This coffee cake is moist and delicious. It tastes amazing fresh out of the oven or chilled, and even tastes good the next day. I cut the recipe down to 1/3 and baked it in a glass bread pan because I was only cooking breakfast for two and it worked out great. I will be making this for a crowd Christmas morning. Thank you for posting!

Made this for Recipe Group...DELICIOUS! Made this exactly as written, and it turned out wonderfully. The 'hardest' part was spreading the dough into the bottom of the pan, but that was easily helped along w/ my hand and some cooking spray. Very simple to make, and I liked the fact that it's not overly sweet, just right! This makes a nice, big cake, so it's enough to feed a crowd. This would even be great w/ some fruit preserves added to the middle as well (not that it needs it b/c it doesn't). A definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

This is a really delicious and moist coffee cake, but I was a little disappointed because the filling wasn't as soft and creamy as I thought it would be. I was hopeing for something more like the Entenmann's cheese filled coffee cake. This filling is very dense and set. The big problem I had, like others, was getting that very sticky dough on the top (I used wet fingers to press and spread out the bottom layer, as suggested by others here). None the less, my family and I are enjoying it for breakfast this morning. Thank you SAXYBONE for sharing with us.

Made this for Recipe Group - and, though I know I shouldn't, I tweaked it all over the place, in an attempt to "healthy-it-up" (= In the dough, I used 1/4 c butter, and 1/4 c coconut oil. I used 1/2 c sugar, and 1/4 c agave. I used 1 c non fat Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream. And I used 1 c all purpose flour and 2 c WW. In the filling, I used 8 oz Neufchatel cheese, and 1 c drained non fat Greek yogurt, and 1/4 c agave. In the topping, I split the 1/3 c flour, 1/2 and 1/2 all purpose and WW. This was good, and my co-workers gave me a favorable response, but I felt like I wanted it sweeter. I think next time, I will split the flour in the dough 1/2 and 1/2 - or use white whole wheat [the store did not have it )=]. And I will probably use an equal amount of agave, instead of cutting it back. [When I googled it, it said to use 1/2 - 2/3 the amount of agave that you would use sugar.] I also would just use all coconut oil in the dough, and maybe add some apple sauce . . . It was good this morning with my cup of tea (=
