Reviews for Make-Ahead Coffee Cake
"Very moist and good coffee cake. Have made it when we have company and everyone thought it was yummy!"
"Nice thought to be able to put the ingredients into a pan overnight, then bake in the morning, but I thought this turned out rather dry. It also didn't rise as I thought it would either. Will go back to my old recipe."
"Wonderfully moist coffee cake. It is so easy to throw the ingredients together and bake the next morning. Most coffee cakes I have seen bake close to an hour. This cuts down on the time with most prep work done the day before, only baking and putting a drizzle on it before heading out the door. Everyone I have served it to loves it."
