Streusel Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
I followed the recipe exactly except for doubling the streusel amount and the brown sugar suggestions, which I would also strongly recommend, and also by adding some salt, as there is no salt listed in the receipe. I would never make this cake again. It was very heavy and dense. The cake part itself had NO flavor. From my limited baking experience the recipe needs to be reformulated to: include salt somewhere (or some other flavor), add some lightness to the cake and butter for the streusel "topping" which is actually the bottom of the cake. Without using a fat to hold the "topping" together at the bottom of the cake the nuts, sugar and cinnamon combo fell off and was dry. The amount of batter was also too much. The cake rose about 3/4 of an inch above the pan, I thought it was going to spill over....
