I changed a few things, so take my review for what it is. I reduced the sugar to 1/3 of a cup and upped the spices to 1 tbsp cinnamon, 1 tsp allspice, 1 tsp nutmeg and 1/2 tsp ginger. And I used an extra egg and oil instead of the melted margarine. Then I poured 1/2 the batter in the pan and added a layer of skor bits before adding the second half of the batter. I also used cane sugar for the topping to give it a bit more of a rustic feel.
This coffee cake was just what I wanted... It was delicious... Now I did make a few changes 1) I used sugar substitute (trivia) ... Texture in the cake was still light and fluffy. 2) for the topping I used brown sugar mixture on top ... Brown sugar and trivia.... This cake is light and fluffy and perfect for tea and coffee
This is a tasty treat, simple and comforting. Good emergency dinner dessert or breakfast coffeecake. Very good.
For how fast and easy this is I was nervous but WOW. Came out really yummy. Kiddies loved it. When they say lots of sugar sprinkled on top it DEFINITELY makes the cake!!
I was really excited about this, but it just didn't turn out all that great in my opinion. There is way too much cinnamon in the batter, and I didn't think it tasted anything like a Snickerdoodle cookie. Sorry!
Nice and easy, holds up well in the fridge over a few days.
My FACS students made this wonderful coffee cake this week in class. I was looking for a recipe that would help them with measuring and give them practice mixing wet and dry ingredients. This cake fit the bill and was very tasty! Thanks for sharing this great recipe, tinkerday! Edit to add: I don't know what I was thinking with my stars...this is a 5 star recipe!!! :) I've made this 3 times in the past week and have had many requests for the recipe. This is a winner! (Make sure you use quite a bit of sugar on top. It makes an awesome and tasty crust.) :)
Excellent! This is so easy it's embarrassing. Zaney1 is right, the crispy sugar crust on top makes it. And when there's a bit of cinnamon mixed into that sugar, zowee!
This is TOO easy to taste this good. Seriously. It takes approximately six milliseconds to make, smells amazing in the oven, and tastes like heaven. What's better?
