Reviews for Glazed Cinnamon-Nut Coffee Cake
"I have used this recipe and have found it to be a great recipe to use! I did make adjustments to this recipe as follows: I added 1/8 cup all-purpose flour so that the raisins wouldn't sink to bottom of the cake. I used 1-1/2 tsp. of vanilla extract, 1-1/2 tsp. butter flavoring and 1-1/2 tsp. almond extract for this recipe! I didn't glaze the cake-I just used the pecan mixture and the batter as recipe directed. I did grease and flour the 13x9x2" baking pan and I baked for 40 to 45 minutes or until my cake tester came out clean! I've used this recipe when baking cakes for our coffee breaks on Sunday between services. It's also nice to vary the flavors of pudding mix, too! Thank you, Maxine Winterheimer, for sharing this recipe! DELowenstein"
