Reviews for Cinnamon-Walnut Coffee Cake
"I made this cake and changed a couple of things. I used butter instead of shortening and added 1tsp of cinnamon & 1/2tsp extra vanilla to batter. Becauce my son doesn't like nuts I used old-fashioned rolled oats. I doubled the topping because my husband loves crumb topping and then I topped it with 10X sugar. Would definitely make again...very good."
