Nice and moist. It didn't rise as much as I thought it would. I used dried cranberries. Easy to make. Plan to make it again. Thanks. Oops! Just realized that I forgot to add the almond extract! Sigh.UPDATE: i have now made this cake 3 times since my first review. I'm addicted! I now use dried cranberries and 1 1/4 tsp almond extract and bake it for 30 minutes in a 9X13 pan. It is the best coffee cake I have ever tasted. Next time, I may use chocolate chips instead of the dried fruit and see how that works.

This was very good. The batter was out of this world, I almost wanted to just pull out a spoon and eat the unbaked batter, it tasted almost like a mousse or a frosting. DH wouldn't let me though, LOL. He absolutely loved the finished product (baked for 30 minutes). It was great, and the house smelled like heaven! Thank you, this is a keeper!

Wow! This cake is so good. I made it on Christmas Eve and it is now Dec. 26 and even better since it has sat for two days. The texture is dense and the flavor buttery. I made it exactly as written and will do so again. Thanks for posting!
