This bread tasted great! I had a hard time getting the topping to stick better. A lot of it crumbled off every time we sliced it. My husband liked to toast thick slices under the broiler and butter them. Perfect with a cup of coffee.
I love this! It tastes like a slightly spicier cinnamon raisin bread (probably because I added 1/2 cup of raisins). After I made it the first time, I made it again the next day! My entire family loves it. It's GREAT!
I made this for my husband's Swedish grandmother and she loved it. It is not supposed to be overly sweet (that's the American expectation). The topping adds enough sweetness for me. Spicy, fluffy light, fabulous! I would make this every week if I could.
My husband grew up with "Swedish Coffee Cake", and he loves this. He said it tastes just like what his mom always bought at the Swedish bakery. I would prefer a sweeter treat, but this is not supposed to be sweet. I make it often for him.
It tasted like there was something missing... almost like it should taste sweeter.
