WOW. This coffee cake is excellent for a lower-fat version. Really, you can't even tell that it is a healhthier coffee cake. None of the flavor is sacrificed. This coffee cake is incredibly moist. It's very easy to make, too. Next time, I will probably double the streusel ingredients because we love the cinnamon and walnut flavor. Thanks for the yummy (and healthier) coffee cake, Lawsome!
