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!
