"I have found THEE Starbucks Classic Coffee Cake CopyCat!! You may find slight variations of the cake at different Starbucks locations. Sometimes there is a ribbon of cinnamon running through the middle of the cake, and sometimes the cake is dusted with a bit of powdered sugar. You'll also find some versions with a few chopped pecans in the topping; and that's the version here. Double up on the topping for the ultimate topping to match starbuck's cake..and can use smaller pan if needed.."
