We loved this. I added a touch of cinnamon to the cake batter. I think that the cake batter would make a great special occasion cake. Very excited to try it different ways in the future. Thank you so much for sharing this delicious recipe
Super great!!!! so easy and so soft!!!! Will try to make again today but use some fresh fruits.
Rich and moist and decadent! Made it once already using dried cherries. Will be making it again today using some rum soaked raisins I have to use up. I'll also have to use chopped almonds instead of sliced, but I don't think there will be any complaints! Was puzzled by the instructions in step 4 though. What does mix inches mean?
Great cake, I baked mine for 33 minutes in a 13 x 9 - perfect. I also plumped my dried cherries ahead of time (put them in 1 1/2 c of water and cooked them for 2 minutes on high in the microwave). Loved the texture and taste with our morning coffee!
I thought I would treat my husband to a Sunday morning treat and this was just exactly what I was looking for. The texture of this cake is incredible. I have never had anything so moist, light and fluffy. I made using dried apricots and was extremely pleased with the outcome (that was the only substitution I made). I will be sharing this recipe with others and will make this again, and again! Thanks for adopting such a wonderful recipe! My cake baked for 30 minutes and was perfect!
My husband was requesting coffee cake, and I came across this recipe. I'm so glad I did! Like the others have all ready said, very dense, rich, moist - very tasty! I used the 1/3 less fat cream cheese, and added some freshly grated nutmeg to the batter. This is going in my permanent file!
Oh shuddup.. this is an AMAZING recipe! Holy Cow!! I served this at an AM Fantasy Football draft thinking it would be the 'chic food', but the guys were eating it all! Amazing. I used what I had in the pantry which was slivered almonds, but they worked equally as well. I also doubled the topping because I had a feeling it would be the best part... and it totally was. I'd do it again. Thanks for the best coffee cake recipe I've tried yet. PS- the leftovers are equally amazing 1 and 2 days after being made as well. Wow!!!!!
Very good cake. Light and fluffy and very moist and rich. I used a mix of dried cherries, cranberries and apple. Delicious. My only complaint is that it was just a little too sweet for me. Didn't bother anyone else, but I'd cut it back to just 1 cup of white sugar next time. This will be a great make ahead for overnight guests. Thanks for sharing.
I made absolutely no changes, and the cake was moist and delicious. The lack of a noted cooking time is tricky, but I would say it took about 35 minutes to bake. I have made this twice already, so you know it's a keeper.
