"This was a big hit at my house this Christmas. The men especially loved and commented on the bacon topping. I don't recall guys ever getting this excited about coffee cake."

"What a very disappointing recipe, why the bacon? It brought nothing to this cake. I was able to salvage it by pouring caramel sauce over it, but it still wasn't devoured like most of the baked goods."
