This has been my "go to" cake for many years. Always reliable and stays moist. I ususally cut the recipe in half and use a loaf pan because there is just the 2 of us. Highly recommend this recipe for ease, moistness, flavor and popularity with most people.

This is a really good cake. It's even better on day two. The sour cream keeps it moist. I baked it in a 9X13 pan and cut 15 minutes off the baking time. It was easier to portion and freeze for future snacking in that pan.

I just took this cake out of the oven and it smells delicious! I am making it for my hubby's birthday and it's going to be a real success! I left out the walnuts due to personal taste, but apart from that I followed the recipe exactly. Excellent cake.

I have made this more times than I can count. This is truly a delicious coffee cake. Sometimes, depending on how I feel, I add 1/2 tsp almond extract in addition to the vanilla extract and sub fat-free plain yogurt for some of the sour cream. Yummy whichever way I make it!

Absolutely delicious!! I must I wondered where the coffee was [pardon my naivete] but after tasting the finished product I didn't care!! Not much of a sour cream person but I couldn't taste it at all!! I halved the recipe and used 1/2 cup of water and it turned out perfectly!! Thanks for posting!

This is an amazing coffee cake. It is soft, moist and utterly delicious. I was choosing between several recipes and am very pleased with this one. I am making this again! I did put this in two bread loaf pans and made an extra graham cracker, butter, brown sugar combination for the topping. I did however use the original cinnamon sugar combo for the layers in the cake.

This cake was unbeleivable! We could not stop eating it (trust me I tried) including the kids who are usually just nibblers. Make it; you'll love it!
