I guess I had good luck because this recipe really worked out well for me. My family thought it was great and asked me to make it again this week!
I must have done something wrong...my baking powder was not outdated but I baked it in a 9x13" pan and it did not rise. I was taking it to work for Secretaries Day and I was kind of embarrassed as it was only about 3/4" deep. Everyone said it tsted good but it was way too sweet. It probably would not have been if It had risen. I will maybe try it aain sometime. I am sure, from the other reviews, that I must have done something wrong. I do love your recipes Kitten and have never had one fail me til now.
Sorry I was very disappointed with this recipe. I mixed the dry ingredients first and then added wet so as not to overmix. I found the cake rubbery and very dense. Not at all what I expected for such a high rated cake. I will not make again.
I thought this would be a no fail recipe considering how easy the directions were and how few ingredients were involved. The cake was neither tasty nor did it have the right texture. I tasted the batter which was good but I spit out the one bite that I did eat after it was done. I followed the instructions to the letter but the cake was very rubbery. I will never make it again and am baffled by its high rating.
I am sorry to post a negative review, but I really was not impressed with this cake. I thought with such great reviews I couldn't go wrong. It tasted very rubbery to me. I was surprised because normally I love Kittencal recipes. As the highest rated cake on recipezaar, I expected a little more out of it.
I added chopped apples to the flop, but I was very disappointed. It was rubbery and tasted strongly of baking powder. I wouldn't make it again.
This was just "ok" in my opinion. I think a bit of flour added to the brown sugar mixture would help lighten it, and cutting the butter into the sugar rather than pouring it over top...for me it all just sunk to the bottom make and impossible mess to get out of the pan. also the directions should state to mix the topping first, set aside. Mix the dry ingrediants then add the wet, you will get a better rise as the liquid activates the baking poweder and should be mixed and baked immediately rather than setting aside waiting while you mix the topping.
I am so sorry to be posting this rating. I love your recipes but for some reason, this one didn't turn out. It didn't rise and it was too tough. I opted to use milk, but I'm not sure that would have made a difference anyway. I am definitely open to suggestions as why this happened to me.
I didn't really care for this much. It was more like sweet bread than coffee cake or cinnamon rolls, even with the glaze over it. I did add in the egg and vanilla.
Sorry... wasn't impressed. It was rubbery and bland.
