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!
have same recipe as marg 1 teaspoon nutmeg in topping also cream better and sugar dont melt butter
I was not a fan of this cake. I still gave it a 4 because my husband took it to work and the guys there all liked it. It was also very moist which I liked but the flavor was a bit too eggy and bland. It might also be the brown sugar I am using. I am in finland and their brown sugar does taste a little different so that might be the flaw in my recipe. It was super easy to make. Thank you.
While my guests enjoyed the cake a lot, I thought it was just so-so. It was very very sweet. In fact, other than sugary, I found it lacking in depth of flavor. With less effort, I could have enjoyed a biscuit-mix coffee cake just as well.
BOY OH BOY is this ever good:) Lots of flavor and very moist. This will certainly become one of our family favorites. Did not refrigerate overnight. Thanks so much LorenLou for sharing this delicious recipe
yum yum! all of our family got together for labor day... we had breakfast at my grandmas house and i made this! so simple and scrumptious! i will definately make this again!
This was so good! I made some substitutions to try to make it a little better for you and it still turned out wonderful. I used whole wheat pastry flour, 1/2 the butter called for, and 1/2 applesauce. I also used fat free yogurt and 4 egg whites in place of the eggs. I was running out of brown sugar so, for the cake, I used unrefined cane sugar. For the topping I used 1 cup white sugar mixed with 2 tbsp. molasses. I also used almonds as my nuts. I did put the topping on right before I baked it, but it sunk deep into the cake. Not the prettiest coffee cake I've ever made, but one of the tastiest. Thanks for a treat the kids made for their dad who is recovering from surgery!
Yummy! I made this over the weekend at my son's request for coffeecake. He was in heaven. The topping sort of creeped into the middle of the cake so I might try sprinkling that on right before baking as Marg suggested. It was very moist and delicious though. We all enjoyed it. I halved the recipe and made it in an 8 by 8 square pan. Thanks for posting!
