Made this recipe this morning for Sunday breakfast. The only changes I made was to use Splenda brown sugar blend, and omitted the nuts (both due to DH's current dietary restrictions). Baked the cake in a 9x13 (instead of two 8x8's). This coffee cake is very easy & quick to put together and tasted delicious - especially warm from the oven. Thanks for posting! -M =)
