"This is great for brunches or family get-togethers, or just any ol' time. It is really good when still warm. I make this cake for Christmas and Easter breakfast when family and friends are here." — Mary

This coffee cake was great! I did make some changes though: instead of using 2 cups white sugar, I used 1 cup white & 1 cup brown. I then used light sour cream and I doubled the streusel topping. On the topping I used brown sugar instead of white. I made mine in a 9 x 13 pan and it baked for about 45 min. My family loved it, thanks Mary!
I don't know what went wrong with this recipe, I followed it exactly, with the exception of using only 16oz of sour cream, which was a little bit less than 2 cups. The batter tasted great, it came out very, very thick. I checked the cake every 5 minutes from 45 to 60 minutes, I was still getting liquid on the butterknife at 45, 50 & 55 minutes. When we ate it, it was dry. The sugar, cinnamon and nut mix did not bake into the cake at all. The nuts on the top burned and the sugar poured off when I removed the cake from the bundt pan. Should it have been mixed with some melted butter? I was very dissapointed and embarrased to have served this to my husband's co-workers!
This was a nice recipe. I left out the nuts and made the streusel from half cup brown and half cup granulated sugar, with more cinnamon and 1/4 tsp of nutmeg. Next time I would make more streusel so that the layer of it is more pronounced and add more flavor. I gradually added streusel to the top of the cake as it baked so that the sugar wouldn't burn. This made a really nice crust to the cake. If doing this, may need to increase the cooking time slightly due to the opening of the oven. Let it cool for few hours before cutting. Wouldn't recommend baking this the morning you want to serve it because it won't cut nicely and makes for a sloppy presentation.
I made these into muffins, baking for 20 minutes. They were wonderful and simple to make!
This is simply fabulous!!!!!!! I made another streusel coffee cake and saw this one recommended by a reviewer. Thank you!
This is moist & delicious. It was gone in less then a day. I made extra cinnamon and sugar and put it in the middle of the cake. I like a big ribbon of streusel in the middle.
I wish I could give this cake 6 stars. It deserves it. Thanks!!
delicious. i too altered by pouring in 1/3 of the batter, then half the cinnamon sugar, then 1/3 batter and the rest of the cinnamon sugar, then the rest of the batter. i cooked it for about 50-52 minutes. 60 is too long. when i served it i sprinkled some powdered sugar on the top. if you cook it too long, it will come out dry. if you follow the instructions for the sugar connoction as stated, it turns into a mess when served. oh and i use pecans instead. yum. we love this recipe with these few changes...
In an effort to lower the fat/carbs/calories a bit, I made several changes. Used 1 c Splenda and 1 c sugar, 1/2 c eggbeaters and 2 eggs, and only had 1/2 c light sour cream, so used that and 1 1/2 c nonfat plain yogurt. As suggested by other reviewers, I doubled the streusel filling and divided the batter into thirds so there was 2 rows of it running through. It needed to be baked for 65 minutes and was done perfectly. Let it cool for about 10 minutes and when I flipped the pan, it came right out. This makes one big bundt cake, but it is really good!
This cake came out moist and yummy. I added more cinnamon and it was a hit!
