This is a very good basic recipe for coffee cake! The batter was much more muffin-like than I anticipated and needed to be pushed to the sides of the pan, which was harder to do for the second layer without messing up the first. Be careful not to over-mix! I made a "perhaps slightly more healthful" version and made it with white whole wheat flour, smart balance (instead of shortening), and fat-free sour cream. I also added 1 tsp of vanilla as others had suggested. Definitely adaptable to add things like currents, raisins, walnuts, pecans, etc as you like.
