    While the coffee cake came out extremely tasty, it's very heavy. I also had to extend the cooking time and it still came out pretty sticky. Next time I will probably substitute the sugar with splenda...

    My family liked this coffee cake - thought it was great for how easy it is to make. I did have to bake it a little longer.
