My family liked this cake and it made a nice breakfast cake. I made it for our Sunday breakfast and the kids had fun helping me make it and then eating it. My family isn't as crazy for nuts in their cakes and that was the only complaint, but that was a personal thing. I thought the nuts were good. What do they know? Thank you for sharing this recipe. I will make it again in the future. (a boring nutless one for my husband and children and then the good nut filled kind for me!!!)

This coffee cake was easy and tastes great. My topping was not crumbly because it kind of baked into the cake, but the taste was great nonetheless. I will definitely make it again.
