This was great! I used plain yogurt instead of lemon yogurt and added 1/2 of a lemon's juice to the batter. I also used the rest of the lemon's juice in the glaze, which I thought added a amazing 'zing' to this recipe. Thanks!

I have made this coffee cake for years to serve on Christmas morning. It is absolutely delicious! While we're opening presents, it's cooking in the oven. I sometimes fix bacon or sausage and eggs to accompany it for a complete breakfast without much fuss. It's a keeper. I also like to alter the recipe by using plain yogurt and using orange zest and juice. I use orange juice in the glaze as well.
