"I brought this to my brothers for Easter brunch today. It received rave reviews from the entire family! I set the timer for 35 minutes for baking to get use to my brand new oven. It was done in that time. The coffee cake was moist and flavorful. I will make this again in the future!!!"

"I have doubled and tripled this recipe with perfect results every time. Added dried cranberries and Orange zest. And also one with blueberries. And one with raspberries. If you alter a recipe even the slightest bit and it fails don't blame the recipe."

"Tried this for the 1st time and the batter was indeed a challenge - almost seemed like there wasn't enough batter to do 2 whole layers in a 9x13 pan. Next time I might try increasing the recipe for the batter and see how that works out. But I got rave reviews."

"Except for the stress of spreading the thick batter to cover the pan, this is outstanding! Husband and son both raved! I made it exactly as written."
