What a great tasting coffeecake this is Melissa. I especially love the added cinnamon/sugar combination thru-out. Just the right amount of crunch and sweet. Since I made at the coffee/cafe I work for and to be sold by the slice I used regular eggs and regular sourcream. But, I can see doing the less pudge substitutes at home w/o any of the taste being compromised. I also used a powdered sugar glaze w/a bit of blueberry syrup added for flavor. Thanks for posting this keeper of a recipe and I"m so happy I tagged it for PhotoTag~
Certainly does not taste like a healthier recipe. Never have this type of egg product but alwyays substitute regular eggs which work fine. For varient you can use 1/2 raspberries which just gives a slightly different finished flavor. Thanks for such an easier and reliable recipe
I tossed out my old bundt last summer and still haven't gotten around to replacing it so I made 2 smaller round cakes which is better for my family anyway. I used the convection and it quickly formed a crispy top "skin" which was broken and the inside cake rose. It's so cool looking like that. I think I must have poured all of the berried in the side of the cake that I didn't cut for the pic because there are lots in there but not in that slice, bummer. Everyone loves it and I know that some blueberry fruit sauce on top would really be outstanding.
Awesome recipe! Everyone who tried this cake did not even realize that it wasn't made of an entire cup of butter. When I tried this recipe, I only had almond extract available. It turned out delicious! Almond extract added another layer and depth of flavor in my cake. Thanks for the great recipe!!
I made this as a special treat for DH today and I am under strict orders from him to give it 5 stars! I used Smart Balance as it is what I keep around, and subbed 1 c oat flour for some of the AP. I also discovered too late that I was out of sour cream, so I improvised and threw in some of DS's plain yogurt and a small snack size carton of vanilla pudding. Worked like a charm! I also cut back on the "topping", as DH isn't big on that sort of thing. 1 T of sugar was enough for us, and we both enjoyed the line of cinnamon-sugar through the center of the cake. Thanks for posting; I know I'll make it again! Made for Healthy Choices 2008.
