      The amount of butter in this recipe is more than I have ever used in a single recipe. So much in fact I felt guilty serving it to my friends, let alone eating it. I used half the butter it called for in the crumble and I added more nuts and some flour to the crumble and I think it came out pretty well. Overall this cake tasted very good but I will not be making it again as it is just way too much butter for me.

      very tasty with lots of nice cinnamon flavor and topping. it's nice and moist - could be due to the 3+ sticks of butter!! i used a tube pan, but would like to try it in a 9 x 13 next time.

      I made this coffee cake on my diet's cheat day. It is absolutely delicious. I almost cried knowing that I cannot make another cake until my next cheat day.LOL It is moist with just the right amount of sweetness. I substituted toasted walnuts for the pecans since that is what I had on hand and I just know it will be even more fabulous with the pecans next time. I also used light sour cream and doubled the syrup recipe. This would make a perfect dessert for a potluck or brunch. This is going to be my go-to coffee cake recipe from now on. Thank you spatchcock for posting this scrumptious winner.
