Reviews for Mocha-Cinnamon Coffee Cake

This coffeecake will impress your guests. It?s easy to make and tastes delicious. I used plain yogurt instead of sour cream and it turned out beautifully. Definitely a keeper.
I am going to try this for my turn at our church brunch. To the lady called "lazyjcafe", try flouring the pan after greasing or spraying.
I make this all the time when I have company. Everyone just raves on it. And it is very simple to make.
I changed the flour to whole wheat pastry flour, trying to keep it a little healthier. Also used chopped almonds since it was the only nut I had, and I thought it would go well with the coffee and choc. chip flavors. I thought the taste was pretty good, but not my favorite. Also, I greased my non-stick pan and the cake still stuck! My daughters and I had fun making this together.
