    Made this for my family and they can't get enough! After reading the other reviews, I was worried about the bottom not having enough flavor, but the whole thing was wonderful. Easy and fun to make. It's perfect warmed up with some vanilla ice cream and a glass of milk! Next time, I'll double the topping and put a stripe in the middle and on top.

    Batter consistancy is like biscuts. My neice and I added more milk to make it more like cake batter.

    This was my very first coffee cake, and even though it wasn't bad I probably won't make it again. I may have messed up on the "quick baking mix" recipe, but this cake just seemed very dry and bland. I should have made more topping than the original recipe called for since that is where all the flavor was.
