This coffee cake was wonderful. I was concerned at first because the batter almost seems like a thick sugar cookie dough, but it bakes like a cake. I thought the calories were crazy high at 575 a serving. I used reduced fat cream cheese, cut the recipe in half, and baked it in my square 8x8 Fat Daddio pan. I greased the pan with PAM, wiped out the excess, and had absolutely no sticking. After it cooled, I cut the cakes into 16 servings about 2x2 inch square easily with a plastic knife. Recalculated with the reduced recipe, and serving cuts, it came to 187 calories per serving. It was plenty enough and great with coffee. Due to having less batter, I just did all of the cake mixture as 1 layer followed by the cream cheese mixture and then the topping which I did sub walnuts in as my only real change for the pecans.
