Cinnamon Nut Coffee Cake

Cinnamon Nut Coffee Cake

"On Sundays, friends and neighbors would stop at my Auntie Rae and Uncle Gene's house. Auntie Rae never cooked on Sundays, so she'd make this coffee cake on Sunday evening, from her own special 'receipt', as she called it. The next day, she'd serve it from the warming closet of her cast-iron kitchen range."

This recipe was so sweet it hurt our teeth. I have never even had a coffee cake so sweet. I think there is a mistake in the sugar amount. Otherwise, the crumb mixture was great. Everyone liked t...

Someone asked how to make this cake not so dry. In coffee cakes, they usually call for milk. If you use sour cream in place of the milk, it will be very moist and a little more dense. Very yum...

Cake came out great but tastewise, it's too dry. Does anybody know how to make it moist?

This is really good. I leave out the nuts and I've never had a problem with it being too dry. Keep in mind that it calls for a 12x8-inch pan. If you're using a 13x9 that could be why it's tur...

I use an almost identical recipe from a 1940's BHG cookbook. It uses 3/4 cup sugar and 3/4 cup milk instead of the amounts listed in this recipe, for a wonderfully textured coffeecake. The cak...

Yes, this was sweet, but still good. I must be in the minority here. I felt there was plenty of batter and not enough topping. In the end, we liked it with the amount that was written, but it...
