This was so yummy! And I love the "overnight" part. I added a teaspoon of almond extract and followed another reviewer and used half whole wheat pastry flour and half applesauce for the butter. I added 1/2 cup of frozen cranberries to half the batter and really liked that (I think fresh blueberries would be great too). We don't like things too sweet, so I cut out a 1/4 cup of the sugar from the cake. It was still sweet, but in a good way. I do think I will cut a couple more tablespoons out of the topping next time though. We really loved this, especially the convenience and the topping!

I followed this recipe almost to the t, with one exception: the mix method. I creamed my unmelted butter with my sugars then added my eggs one at a time and then added my buttermilk. I whisked my dry ingredients together in another bowl then added then into my wet ingredients. The resulting cake was incredibly soft, light and fluffy. It was a smashing success. I didn't think it was overly sweet but I had it with strong black coffee. Super convenient when you've got guests and I love that you can make fresh baked coffee cake evenwith a hangover.

Great recipe! I used the plain yogurt instead of the buttermilk and it was perfect. I did use the higher amount of sugar for the topping, and think I'll use less next time. Thanks!
