Reviews for Graham Streusel Coffee Cake
"This was really yummy! It was relatively easy to make, and I loved the graham cracker filling/topping. It's a great addition to a breakfast or brunch or at coffee or dessert time."
"I omitted the nuts and icing and took this to a baby shower. It was good, but not outstanding (it was plenty sweet, so I do not think we would have enjoyed it more with the icing). However, it was done in 30 min! I am glad I checked the cake box. 40 minutes seemed too long."
"If you bake this the night before you serve it, will it still be tasty & moist?"
"Good, quick, easy cake. My cake baked for less than 40 minutes though. And I would agree with the other reviews in decreasing the butter to 1/2 cup."
"I made this as a treat for my husband's fellow tennis players--of course, I had a piece myself (always have to taste new recipes). I used a 9 x 13 pan and cut it into 28 pieces. It took exactly 40 minutes to bake. I was very disappointed when he came home with an empty pan (no leftovers for me)--he said they loved this coffee cake. I really hate the taste of powdered sugar in icing so I made the icing much better by adding a little melted butter, vanilla, and using some left over whipping cream instead of milk--really good icing with no powdered sugar taste. I also added a little extra cinnamon to the topping (love it). I used a yellow cake mix from Aldi's that used oil in the mix (not butter) and had no problem with the topping sinking to the bottom--instead it all rose to the top which was fine."
