I had this in the oven when my father in law dropped by. I was really glad it cooked evenly since I cut it almost immed. after out of the pan. I was a little nervous the topping would fall off (since I've never done it so close to end of baking time) but it stayed on nicely. I loved that the texture was more on the order of a pound cake (which is why I chose it) and not crumbly. I kept this in the fridge and even the last piece tasted as good as the first (5 days later). Thanks Brisket in Roses, for a wonderful coffee cake recipe! Roxygirl
