My rating is really only based on the cake part. Because based on the previous reviews... I didn't want the lemon in the cheese filling and I am not a fan of nuts. So here is how I made this. I followed the cake instructions step by step except I sifted the dry ingredients and did 1/2 brown sugar 1/2 white. For the filling I did 8oz of cream cheese, 1/4 cup of powdered sugar, and 1 tablespoon of melted butter and a half teaspoon of vanilla extract. For the topping I did a streusel. 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 3 tablespoons of room temp butter, and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. I sprinkled the crumble mixture on top and baked for 40 minutes. After the cake had completely cooled I put a glaze on top. For the glaze I took 1/2 cup of powdered sugar, 3 tablespoons of melted butter, 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 2 table spoons of milk. Mix and drop glaze from a spoon on to cake. After making those changes... this is one of the best coffee cakes I have ever had! Next time I will add a little more sugar to the cake and maybe a little almond extract.
