I combined coconut, chocolate chips and walnuts to make the yummy filling in this coffee cake. My husband and two of my sons don't like coconut, but they still enjoy this recipe. -Char Fricke, St Charles, Illinois

"The filling sunk into this cake, leaving it gummy on the bottom. Flavor was just ok."

"This recipe was good, but it was not our favorite. It was a little dry and it didn't really seem like a coffee cake."
