Reviews for Crumble-Top Coffee Cake
"This is a great recipes. I was wondering if it is possible to make this cake in a bundt pan. How would you put the crumbs on top? would you put the crumbs in the bundt pan then the batter and bake it?"
"Delightful! I added 2 tsp. of vanilla to wet ingredients and an extra apple. I also doubled the crumble topping, adding 1/3 of it ove the apple layer. Really moist and flavorful. Also, I used mixed nuts and used an extra 1/2 cup there baking for full 60 min. Definitely will be making this recipe again!"
"delicious! i would cream the sugar and butter with eggs at the same time...and also coat the apples in cinnamon sugar as the other user suggested. SO GOOD. definitely a keeper :)"
" I only wish I would've noticed this recipe before I made the Martha Stewart version of a coffee cake. About as blah as Martha's haircut! This sounds so much better! "
"Loved the texture and flavor of this coffee cake. I'd like to add more apples, but it almost overflowed my 13 x 9-inch baking pan as it is. We love cinnamon, so I sprinkled the apples with cinnamon and sugar and again over the top. I'll definitely make this one again!"
