This recipe elevated a plain cake mix into something special. I used a banana cake mix and pecans instead of almonds. The cake stayed super moist and was a huge hit with my family. I skipped the powdered sugar and we thought the cake was plenty sweet without it. I saved this recipe in my favorites. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

Easy to make and delicious. Next time I make it, I will add some mini chocolate chips to the sugar-nut mixture. I will also save some sugar-nut mixture and put it on the top of the cake before putting it in the oven.

I might have made a mistake somewhere along the line but this did not come out like a coffee cake at all, but more like a banana cinnamon swirl cake!! it is a tasty cake but it was not what i expected. I baked it in a 13X9 in pan which is what i normally use for coffee cakes. i will keep on the hunt for a great coffee cake recipe which i have not found yet :(
