"While this coffee cake was yummy, I felt it was missing something. Next time I make it I'll add a teaspoon of either vanilla, almond or lemon extract. Fresh lemon juice would be good too. We did enjoy it and loved the sprinkling of sugar on the top before baking. Adds a nice little crunch."

"Very good, kind of like muffins in a square pan. I used half-and-half (out of milk) and baked it in a 9x9" pan for about 30 minutes. Next time I will add vanilla extract, which I think this coffee cake needs.

Note to self: Next time try it in a greased half-size bundt pan; sprinkle the pan with the sugar before adding the batter."

"This cake is good. In order to cut down on carbs a bit, I used less than 1/2 cup of sugar for the cake, and omitted the 2 tablespoons of sugar for the top of the cake. Also, I was out of fresh milk, so I substituted coconut milk. This was a good cake and easy to make."
