This is a fantastic breakfast cake. My family and friends LOVE it. DH is a chocoholic so he pours chocolate syrup on top of it while it's still warm. Have to admit it is really good that way also. Thanks for a wonderful recipe.

The perfect cake -- it was easy to bake and is just right for coffee and snacks. I added a little brown sugar and cinnamon to the topping crumbs. Also, after greasing my 8" pans with a light film of Crisco, I floured them and the cakes popped right out. Thank you so much for sharing your fine recipe with us Miss Annie!
