OMG, this coffeecake is excellent. Followed the directions as stated, and it came out so good. We really enjoyed. Thanks for posting, Di. LC
Wonderful coffee cake! The cake was moist and the two layers of streusal was divine. I did add mini-choclate chips instead of the currants. And this time I did not do the icing because I was out of powdered sugar. It was still excellent anyway. The streusal amount I thought was too much so maybe next time I will just half the amounts. This is a keeper, thanks!
I did a double batch of this for a brunch at work, they were gobbled up in no time flat. OUTSTANDING. Since if was for a brunch, I baked them off as cupcakes, cooked at 375 for about 20 mins. As usual, Di's recipe's kick butt. Besides being a hottie that girl can cook, your man must be one lucky guy :-)
I am going thru some of my old food magazines to post the ones I want to save and here this one is! This might be one of the best coffee cakes I have ever tasted. I have made this many times, I usually leave out the currants. I saw this in Bon Appetit magazine, Dec. 1998 in their favorite restaurant recipes section, R.S.V. P. (see how long I have been keeping these cut-out recipes? LOL) The original recipe is from Cafe Zenon in Eugune, OR. Thanks for posting as it is no longer on the Bon Appetit website and I would have had to type it all in.
