Wow. I've never made a coffee cake before, but this was exactly what I was looking for. The batter is a bit thick, so when you try to spread the top layer over the middle cinnamon filling section, I'd reccomend putting down several dollops and then spreading. I'm generally not a fan of nuts, but I thought they added a nice contrasting texture to the cake.
My oven runs hot and my 10" round cake pan had a dark coating, so I turned the temp down to 350, but then it took nearly 40 minutes to bake and the top got pretty dark. I'll either turn up the heat next time or take it out while the middle is still a little squishy - more like coffee cake anyway right?
Speaking of which, I might also experiment with adding some pudding mix to the batter to add some moisture to it.
