      I used whole wheat pastry flour instead of all-purpose and I added a teaspoon of vanilla and a couple teaspoons cinnamon to the cake batter. The only problem was there wasn't enough butter to keep the topping together and on top of the cake. I will significantly increase the amount next time I make this.

      this recipe was nice and simple, and the cake part came out well. the only thing i had a problem with was the topping. i think it needs more butter or something to make the brown sugar tuen a bit more "crumbly". the way it is right now is basically just as if i had dumped a lot of brown sugar on top, which makes it messy to eat and serve.

      I just made this coffee cake and it's delicious. I added a little vanilla, used less salt, and more melted butter to the topping mixture. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because I thought it might have been a wee bit better with half the batter spread in the pan, then topping mixture, and then the rest of the batter and more topping on that. There just wasn't quite enough batter to spread over the bottom using just half, although possibly if I fussed more, I might have pulled it off. Had I done that, I would have winged it with making a little more topping, but I wouldn't have doubled the topping recipe. I will definitely use this recipe again.
