What a very nice coffee cake this turned out to be for my family! I followed the recipe exactly and used chopped almonds for the topping as my nut of choice. The cake is dense but still moist which is wonderful. Nice flavors. I think I would like a bit more topping or something so I may use more of a cinnamon sugar streusel topping instead of this one for the next go round. It does serve up nicely though as the cake really retains it's shape as you slice it. I doubled this recipe and made a 13x9" cake and it was perfect! No issues at all with doubling and just adjusted the baking time for 45-50 minutes and it was finished. Made this for the Pick A Chef Event 4/2009 where I "adopted" you as one of my chefs! Thanks for a keeper!
