Yummy Kuchen! Yummy cake! Mine seems to be a bit lighter colored but that is b/c I used light brown sugar. I did as cookiedog (another Unruly) did made a half cake but kept ALL the cinnamon at amount listed here-the more cinnamon the better. Easy to make and unique making it special. DB, while eating I visualized our wonderful Black Forest hike with our team. Mia in Germany is so lucky! Thank you for posting. Made for an Unruly by an Unruly during ZWT6.

Great unusual coffee cake! I was tempted to add more butter to the crust mixture because it was so powdery that I didn't think it would stick together when baked, but I'm really glad that I didn't. I loved the sugary texture of the crust in comparison to the soft moist cake part. Because I was doing some pantry weeding this weekend, I chopped up some whiskey praline peanuts for the topping, and I used some Pampered Chef Sweet Cinnamon Sprinkle in place of the plain cinnamon sugar mixture. I'd definitely make this again! Thanks for posting! :) Made for The Queens of Quisine for ZWT6 Germany

Love this coffee cake! We liked the crust, and the cake came out so moist. The only nuts I had in the house were dry roasted peanuts so I crushed them for the topping. Delicious! Made for ZWT6: No-Nonsense Nibblers.

This was way to good and so easy to prepare! The crust is really buttery and had a caramel flavor from the brown sugar. The sourcream mixture bakes into a cake layer and then there is a thin layer of struesel. I made half a recipe and used an 8x8 pan. It kind of had the texture of brownies and it was about the same thickness too. I bet this would be great packed in a lunch box or warm from the oven with a bit of vanilla ice-cream. Thanks Dienia from a fellow UNruly for ZWT 6.

Delicious coffeecake! The middle was so moist and soft, a great match with the crunchy topping. I made 1/4 of the recipe in a 5"x6" pan and it worked perfectly, giving me 3 good-sized servings. Really loved this - thanks for sharing the recipe!
