"Very good, kind of like muffins in a square pan. I used half-and-half (out of milk) and baked it in a 9x9" pan for about 30 minutes. Next time I will add vanilla extract, which I think this coffee cake needs.

Note to self: Next time try it in a greased half-size bundt pan; sprinkle the pan with the sugar before adding the batter."

"This cake is good. In order to cut down on carbs a bit, I used less than 1/2 cup of sugar for the cake, and omitted the 2 tablespoons of sugar for the top of the cake. Also, I was out of fresh milk, so I substituted coconut milk. This was a good cake and easy to make."
