      Very soft,moist and delicious cake. I used low fat sour cream and butter substitute to cut down some cholesterol and fat. I would definetely make it again,but next time I will reduce the amount of sugar in the batter to 1/2 cup instead of 1 cup. It was a little too sweet for my our taste. Thank you.

      What a mouthwatering aroma from the oven while baking! Pure agony to have to wait before tasting. Made one change, mixed the nut/cinnamon with the batter instead of sprinkling. This is indeed a rich, moist and very tasty cake. Hubby did not give one word of comment, he just helped himself to a third piece, that says it all! Will certainly make again. Thanks for posting.

      Oh so moist and delicious! The buttery ribbon of cinnamon and walnuts puts this coffee cake over the top! While it was baking, I could smell the thick, rich sour cream batter mixed with the scent of cinnamon. The 1 hour cooling in the pan was pure torture. DH slathered his piece with butter and popped it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Thanks for sharing another lovely recipe Bev. Nick's Mom
