Very good coffee cake which we enjoyed just the way it was written -- didn't change a thing. Thanks Evelyn for another winning coffee cake recipe!
I make this one a lot during the year, not just holidays. It is a very moist coffee cake and love the flavor.
Another winning recipe, Evelyn! I made it exactly as written and it came out perfect. I like that I was able to make a cake from things that I already had on hand. We have already eaten half of it!
I made the full recipe in 2 8" round pans because we were going out of town and froze one. I thought it was good, but not awesome. The cake itself is nice and tender and has a lovely cinnamon flavor, but it tastes pretty normal to me and isn't really exceptional IMHO. Maybe next time I would use butter instead of oil for that bit of wonderful flavor butter gives since there is no other dominant flavor in this other than cinnamon. I was kind of disappointed that it didn't have a fresh heady cinnamon flavor, but the large quanity made it taste kind of odd. Just not quite right. The teqnique for making the crumbs is very cool and unique. I would try this again, but maybe use a little less cinnamon and sub butter for the oil. Thanks for posting, Evelyn.
