This was super bland for me. Needs more flavor! Good moist texture though.

This cake is really easy and takes no time to make. I doubled it with great results. I thought the cake was really light and quite good for what little effort it took. Thanks for sharing.

I made this as part of PAC Spring'07 - yet another tasty recipe from Nikki Kate! I actually made it the night before taking it to work, so we didn't get to enjoy it warm, but it was delicious nonetheless. I used vanilla sugar in the topping and added a splash of vanilla to the batter (can you tell I like vanilla??) and it was scrumtpious! A very nice coffee cake and so easy to throw together!
