Great basic recipe to have. Thank you for posting it. I needed a cake quickly and when I read beat the butter with sugars, etc I thought, ugh, mixer. So I thought I'm going to try just melting the butter in the micro and I added the sugars, mixed it and did the measuring for the other ingredients then continued in the directions. Came out fine. My only other thought was although the cake tastes great as is, it would be great with additions. The author mentions raisins and apples, I think blueberries might be yummy or at the very least, I might double the topping recipe and just pour in half the batter, sprinkle the topping, then rest of batter, then topping. Glad I made it.
Perfect little cake to make quickly. I used rice milk instead of dairy milk and margarine instead of butter. This cake is fluffy, moist and light. I added dried cranberries while folding dry ingredients to wet. It is very important not to over mix the batter.
Needing something quick and easy to bring to work this morning, I chose to make this coffee cake. I ended up making 2 separate cakes and it was a good thing...they are DELICIOUS! I'll definitely put this recipe in the file! It's so easy, takes a short amount of time to bake, and is scrumptious.
Turned out really nice - delicious and moist. I skipped more sugar for the icing, using only cinnamon. If you use a pound cake pan like I did, make sure to add about 10 minutes to the baking time.
Thank you for this delicious, quick recipe. I wanted to bring a home cooked meal to a neighbour whose mother had passed away. I was uncertain what to make for a dessert since I hadn't stocked up on the baking supplies this week, but this fit the bill perfectly! I had everything on hand. I did add one shredded apple and maybe added 5-7 minutes cooking time. I made an extra one for my family too and we loved it. Thanks Eldeevee!
This is a great recipe! It was quick, easy and very tasty! It is great to have a recipe that can be made up quickly when unexpected (and expected) company arrives! Thanks for posting!
I made this for PAC fall 2007. Wow. I can't believe how quick and easy this was to put together. The cinnamon and sugar make a nice crust on top. I wouldn't add a thing to this. YUM.
