A very nice coffee cake with light buttery and lemon flavor. I only used 1 cup sugar. It turned out just the way we liked it. Great for family gatherings. Thanks for sharing.
A great makeover recipe! This is delicious! I used vanilla yogurt in place of the sour cream & cut the sugar by half. I also added 3 cups of chopped apples. The cake itself is moist & delicious. The apples make it even better :) Oh, I used a full cup of walnuts!
This isn't a rating; just a question. The recipe description talks about a "full cup of walnuts" but the ingredients list has only 1/4 cup. ?? I sure like the sound of this cake and would love to bake it, but would like to know about the quantity of walnuts, please.
A good basic coffecake. Love the lemon flavors!
I want to try this coffee cake but it does not use baking powder. Am I missing the obvious?
