I had a pile of strawberries I needed to use up, so I made this into a strawberry coffee cake. I added a tsp. of vanilla and 1/2 tsp. of almond extract, and also the extra 1/4 cup of milk recommended by the other reviewers. I left out the cinnamon in the streusel, and used walnuts since that was what I had available. Almonds would probably also have been excellent.
Because I used up all the berries I had on hand, I ended up with about 3 cups of diced berries, which was probably too much moisture for the cake. I baked it in a glass 8x8 pan for 50 minutes, and it was still a little puddingy in the middle, but very done on the edges. But it is absolutely delicious! So next time I think I'll make sure to use fewer berries, but otherwise not change my method. It's a very nice cake!
