This recipe was a treat to work with. I made the coffee cake for a meeting at work and it was a huge success! Everyone loved it - said it was super-moist and several people requested the recipe! I did make a couple of changes only due to not including nuts due to possible allergies. The recipe calls for 2 cups of chopped pecans - I substituted 1 cup of instant oatmeal and 1 cup of Hershey's cinnamon chips - to go along with the cinnamon theme of the cake. It was great and the recipe is awesome! I want to try one w/ the nuts for home now!! :) Thanks, Kristi!
This was absolutely fabulous. I couldn't find instant butterscotch so instead I used vanilla and bananna and used 2 tablespoons of sugar instead of 1/4 cup. I also swirled the sugar mixture throught out the cake. My husband and neighbors loved it. I would definitely make it again. In fact my neighbors want one.
Very good. I didn't have the vanilla pudding on hand so I used banana and the butterscoth. It was great. Everyone loved it. Thanks.
