"Fabulous! Since there were only a few reviews and one said all the raisins sunk to the bottom, I simply tossed the raisins with a Tblsp of flour before adding them. It keeps them from sinking and makes the coffee cake fabulous. This is the exact same recipe my mom called Ooey Gooey Coffee cake and I love it. Of course, I added more crumb topping in the middle and on top just because I wanted it to be too rich to eat more than a small piece at a time so it would last longer."

"Very tasty, moist and not too sweet. Made for men on church workday - they gobbled it down and said "much better than Dunkin Donuts!"

"If I want to use vegetable oil instead of butter to make the cake moister, how much oil should I use?"

"This is a good recipe, but the cake could use more of the crumbled mixture and i had a problem with sinking raisins in the batter...they were all at the bottom. Otherwise, i thought it was pretty good."
