This was excellent! Very moist with a nutty and crunchy topping. The best sunday morning coffee cake ever =)

I have made this so many times and it is always delicious! Friends and family all love it! It is very cake-like, but I love how moist and flavorful it is!

This was ok. It was still too much just a "yellow cake" to me.

Good and fast!

I love this recipe. I do make one change. I double the frosting. Very yummy! Everyone at church loved it.
