This is very good. I love the actual cake part! It is so dense and buttery and just fantastic. I think, however, that I am more of a cinnamon coffee cake kinda gal. Everyone else LOVED this cake in its entireity, filling and all. I would be interested to try adding either cinnamon or another flavor to the filling and topping (orange or lemon zest perhaps) or simply omitting the filling and trying a cinnamon struesel instead. Still, wonderful! And if you love the tang of cream cheese, this is for you!
Big hit at my house with this one! I made it when company was coming so I wouldnt have too much left over... Fat chance of that! It was awesome and one recipe that I will treasure!
Oh my gosh, this is the BEST! We love, love, love this recipe! So rich and delicious. Makes getting out of bed in the morning quite a bit easier :-)
Loved it. Once I started making it, I realized I only had one package of cream cheese, not two, so I forged ahead and after adding the filling, I added a layer of tart cherries. I made it for a pitch in dinner, but my husband didn't really want to share!
No stars for now because I just made the filling to use with another coffee cake recipe. I was concerned by the reviews stating this was a dense cake (whereas I wanted a fluffier cake) BUT in using a lighter cake recipe, the cream cheese filling baked into the cake and didn't make a separate layer so I just wanted to let other know that the denseness of the cake is necessary to hold the filling (which was wonderful!) together. Wish I would've just made the cake as instructed!!! Anyway wanted to let others know. I will make it as instructed in the future (and add 5 stars I'm sure!) and as always, thanks for posting!
Another recipe I should have reviewed long ago. This cake is one of my absolute favorites. It really is delicious, and everyone who tastes it is so impressed. The only thing I don't like about it is getting so many bowls to wash... but for a cake like this, it's worth it!
followed directions exactly and the result was way beyond delicious....This cake is a winner.
Was looking for a coffeecake recipe and lucked up on kittencals recipe. It's 'most definately a 10 star all the way. Mine came out just like k c's picture.. took it to a club meeting and it was gone in no time, they couldn't stop raving over it. I did manage to save dh a little piece. He only had one complaint. Said why such a tiny piece????? this will be a regular.
So awesomely good! I made this for Christmas morning this past year and it was a huge hit with everyone. I made one small addition, I added a jar of Cracker Barrel Cherry Cobbler filling into the filling, and it was heavenly! Thanks Kit!
This was extra good after it was refrigerated - you could taste the cream cheese.
