    Brenda.'s Note:

    This is a low, dense coffee cake, with a hint of citrus. I recommend using the lemon extract vs the vanilla called for in the recipe. My cake tends to fall in the center as some of the posters have mentioned. I tried baking in a 9x9 pan and it helped, but still sank a little. If anyone has suggestions, I love to hear them as this really is a delicious coffee cake --Brenda.

      I made a cake similar to this one for our Chilean exchange student. She took one bite & burst into tears. It seems her grandmother had made the same cake for her right before she left to come to the US, She still loved having it and I now make it on a regular basis for friends & family.

      P.S. I might have made it with another recipe but I'll definitely never use this recipe again when I make Que Que. The batter overflowed the pan, burned onto the bottom of my oven and ruined the entire cake. My house now smells like burnt sugar and I have nothing to take to the potluck it was going to. Now I have to do something I have never done in my 40 years of baking...stop at the grocery and pick something up. Not a happy camper. :(

      My family loved this recipe! We got a bit worried when the middle basically collapsed a bit. But the flavor of the cake was wonderful and it was so moist!

      This was ok. It dropped in the middle. It was easy and a quick fix. I would not make again. Thanks.
