This is terrific. I actually made it even lower in fat but using egg substitute. We love this cake! Oh, and I found a 13x9 pan worked just fine.

This is a family favorite coffee cake. I have found, however that the 13x9 pan isn't large enough. I either use two 9" or a 15X10. Also, my kids like it best when I use only cinnamon & omit the nutmeg & cloves.
