This is THE bomb! I am not much of a baker and it got raves from all! I have made this several times now, and I double the topping as we love it. I have also added walnuts or pecans to the topping. If having for dessert instead of breakfast, we have served with vanilla ice cream or a drizzle of caramel sauce over the top. Make this today, you will be asked for the recipe over and over again...it's that good! Thanks for posting blucoat.
just made this, husband went for 2nds. definately a hit!!! will make this often!!
Very moist and tasty. I used light butter without any problems. I did, however, forget to soften the butter for the topping. I ended up melting the butter, so I could get the cake in the oven. That said, what you see in my photos probably isn't the way it is supposed to look. My husband's comment was the flavors were very balanced. None of them over powered the other ones. This recipe is a keeper!
Every morsel is tender and I loved every bite. I've already figured out that the chocolate is going to have to wait for a couple of days! Although I haven't tried it with ice cream, I can see how amazing that would be and what a great suggestion. When it came out of the oven last night, I loved the smells throughout the kitchen and house and couldn't wait to have my first piece this morning. I'm so glad that I picked this over a shortcake recipe I was going to try last night! YUMMY!
The cake batter was amazing before I cooked it! :-) When the cake was done, everyone enjoyed it.. I would have liked a more crumbly topping and/or more of the topping. Will be making this cake again.
Perfect in every way!
