I added a teaspoon of vanilla extract to the cake batter and 1/2 teaspoon of Penzey's cinnamon to the streusel mixture. I also used brown sugar (1/4 cup of dark and 1/4 cup of light) instead of white sugar for the streusel. Just ate a piece. Delicious, but it needs to cool completely before cutting, otherwise it's very crumbly. I will make this again.

Very good. May double the topping next time. I also used brown sugar for the topping

I followed the recipe exactly as it is written. I was a little concerned as the batter was extremely thick; thick as cookie dough. It was difficult to spread in the pan. Despite this, the recipe turned out beautifully. The streusel had a perfect flavor and crunch. Loved it!

Question to all - Could you double the recipe for a 13X9 pan? and how long would you bake it?

I love this recipe and make it often. I have large Michigan blueberries and I always add an additional 1/2 cup or so. The batter is very thick, I pat it into the baking pan. Maybe I'll try adding a bit more milk but I've had no problem with the cake being dry. Maybe it's the extra big blueberries.

flavor was good but I agree with other reviews that it was on the dry side. I added vanilla and used brown sugar in the topping vs. white sugar. Topping was AMAZING! Overall very good but maybe need to add sour cream to the recipe to get the moisture level right.

I love this coffee cake! I use a berry blend- raspberries, blueberries, & blackberries. I omit the pecans from the batter & put them in the topping instead. I make the topping with brown sugar instead of white, also. It's delicious, every time!

I'm confused by the reviews. Are you sure all the ingredients are listed and the quantities are correct? I used the ingredients shown and in the quantities listed, and this was the DRIEST coffee cake I've ever had or made. What am I missing?

Disappointing. Lacked flavor. Maybe vanilla would have helped and cinnamon in the topping, as one reviewer suggested. The blueberries were plump and delicious, but the whole cake seemed like it steamed, even the nuts were no longer crunchy. The topping made with white sugar stayed pale looking, even though the outside of the cake was golden brown. Brown sugar would have been better for the topping. I'm not making this again.
