As written, this cake is bland and dry. However, when I modify it, it is fab. I follow the recipe to a T, except I always use 1/3 c. of applesauce + 2 T. of oil instead of using 1/2 c. of shortening and use 2t of cinnamon instead of 1 t. The applesauce and oil give the cake a moister texture, and lower the fat and calories at the same time! I also add a streusel on top. The recipe is as follows: 3/4 cup packed brown sugar 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted and cooled 1/2 cup chopped walnuts Mix the sugar, cinnamon, and walnuts in a bowl. Add the melted and cooled butter or margarine, and mix until smooth and somewhat pasty. Crumble on top of coffee cake mixture. When done, the topping becomes crispy, crunchy, and delicious. Thanks for the recipe!
