The streusel was amazing, but the cake itself was too dry. I felt there was not enough batter to create two layers. I will keep experimenting with the cake batter so its nice and moist and blends well with the awesome streusel. Thank you for the posting.
Yummy cake! I omitted the nuts and added extra apple when making the streusel, and it came out very well. I did have to pull it from the oven after about 25 minutes, but my oven always cooks fast. I would say, make sure the streusel is well surrounded by batter. If it runs out, the cake is very hard to get out of the pan. Made for PAC Fall 2007. Thanks!
Very good, only promlem I had is that it doesn't mention adding the apples in the directions, so I forgot them...but hey it made a great streusel coffee cake
