Lori - this is a very dense but flavorful coffee cake. I was a bit surprised at how thick the batter turned out - it was almost like a bread dough - sticky and very thick so I did add a bit more sour cream to try to help but it was very doughy. It still baked up in the 40 minutes. It is great warmed up the next day - as my DH and I prefer a less dense coffee cake and the reheating helps the density. It has such great flavors and is not overly sweet which is perfect for us! Made for the Gimme 5 Tag Game!
I have only used this recipe for the topping. I have used the topping 2 times on Blueberry Coffee Cake Muffins,only because I like these muffins. I will try your cake one time though it does look great. thanks for the posting
i have the same plates that you do! lol
Made this for sweetest day for dh and he loved it :) lori I have yet to find a recipe of your's we haven't loved. This one is another winner and so glad I found it. This coffee cake is highly recommended.. Great tasting coffee cake and with coffee, mmmmm Thanks for another hit!! :)
I love coffee cakes too, Lori! And this one turned out very tasty! I was a little worried at first because the dough was very stiff and I didn't think I could spoon it into the pan as the recipe said. So I added another 1/4 cup of sour cream. It was still stiff, but spreadable. I did put apple slices on top as suggested, and that gave it an extra nice flavor. This was a little heavier coffee cake than I'm used to, which surprised me since it calls for a Tbsp of baking powder. But the end result was very pleasing. Great with my morning coffee! Thanks for sharing this recipe, Lori!
