Very good coffee I think the way the recipe was laid out could be improved. I used a Badford pear and pink lady apple. This was not as sweet as other coffee cake recipes I have made. This is a good thing. I will make again

Delish! I sure do feel guilty! YUMMO!
I did use 1 pear and 1 apple equaling 3 cups of diced fruit. I used Kefir cream for the sour cream. Used almond slices because that is what I needed to use up. I so do think the pecans would be so much better. Cut the brown sugar to half the amount and still was plenty sweet! Thanks SWEETIE! ;)
