This coffee cake had my coworkers swooning! It's tender, buttery, and very delicious. Don't substitute margarine -- it's just not the same. The recipe doubles nicely for a 9x13-inch pan.

Sorry this didn't go over too well, it turned out very heavy. Probably because my hand mixer could not handle it, There was no way i could beat the batter for 2 minutes dumping all the ingredients mentioned at once, it turned into a thick gluey mass which ran up the mixer beaters and slowed down and almost stopped the mixer. Even adding the eggs did not help. I think if the butter, flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and milk were added separately it probably would have worked. I definately was not done in the 50 minutes, it was still raw in the middle, I baked it about 80 minutes, it was still heavy and under done. We did try to eat it but it was just too heavy. Sorry but I wouldn't make it again. Perhaps others have bigger and better electric mixers.
