Mmm...this was so good! The cake is soft, spicy, and just sweet enough. I love that it has no sugar, since I used 100% fruit raspberry preserves. Instead of sandwiching the jam layer between the cake layers, I just heated the preserves a little bit in the microwave (so as to make them more "spreadable") and drizzled them over all the batter. Next time I think I'll do the sandwich thing and use half whole wheat flour. Thank you for a great breakfast treat! Even my whole wheat coffee cake recipe has sugar in it, but this doesn't. :-) I'll definitely be making this again.

Very fast and easy to make! Extremely tasty while also low-fat. I love that it uses basic ingredients and you can throw this together with what's on hand without planning or preparation.

This is a very fast sweet treat. It reminded me of biscuit/jam. I followed the recipe. Thanks for posting.
