"It is a good recipe, but it was way too dry even though I was careful not to overbake....so I made some changes. I used all brown sugar for both the cake and the swirl. I also added 4 tbsp of melted butter to the swirl and added more nuts, about 3/4 cup total instead of 1/2 cup. With these changes, it is now a 5-star cake. In my oven, 60 minutes was just right so make sure and check at 55-60 minutes depending on your oven. Do not overbake unless you like dry cake."

"This is great!!! I made it for my husband to take to work one Saturday morning. The crew he works with build transmissions and they also build up some appetites! They sang praises over this coffee cake...said it was the best they'd ever had..and several asked for copies of the recipe to take home! What a hit!"
