"I believe that this is the recipe I'd made-My only change with ingredients was using 1 tsp. salt. I'd also baked the cake 35 to 40 minutes. This is a really good recipe!"

"I think it needed a middle layer. This is what I used for the middle layer:

1/3 c. brown sugar
1/3 c nuts
1 tsp Cinnamon.
I put half the batter in the pan. Then sprinkled the middle layer over it. Then topped it with the rest of the batter. I cooked it for 35 minutes."

"Very good! I've made it twice--first time, I didn't get it done enough. Second time was perfect, but needed 35-40 minutes in my oven. I didn't have pecans so used walnuts."

"Everything a coffee cake should be. What a nice alternative to using up those bananas that get a little too ripe."

"I always find it amusing when people still think that coffee cake refers to a cake made with coffee. Either they have never had a grandmother or mother who baked much or lived in a place where baked goods are rare. A coffee cake is simply a cake of the quick bread nature which is meant to be eaten with a cup of coffee. U. Chef, there is no coffee here because it is not meant to have it. Every nationality has a version of such a cake. In this recipe, Georgia Courtney has given us a beautiful example of how a great coffee cake and a good cup of coffee can really make your day."
