MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 1, 2014

This is a yummy coffee cake. I like to add some blanched or slivered almonds to the mixture that is to be sprinkled on top of the cake.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 18, 2012

I make 1.5 times the dough amount, so it is easier to spread. I am going to try it with cranberries next and see how that goes. It isn't too sweet and is wonderful warm.
