I made this on a whim this morning because I was craving coffee cake for breakfast. It was pretty easy to throw together and I had all the ingredients on hand. The batter came out very thick, almost like a dough. I was thinking I had done something wrong. I had to spread it in the pan with my spoon and then add the butter and topping. I baked it for 20 minutes. The final cake came out with good flavor, although maybe a little dough-y. I may modify this recipe if I try it again. I did have 3 pieces for breakfast, ha, so it is tasty, but seems like it needs a little fine tuning.
This is billed as easy and it really is. It's also very good! The cake itself is a great texture, light and moist, and the brown sugar topping is a little crispy. I think next time I'd use regular golden brown sugar instead of dark for a lighter colour of topping and add a bit more flour to the topping. I followed the recipe except that I used 2% milk. Thank you for a very nice recipe!
