I got this recipe from my mother-in-law. My husband likes this so much he requests it as his birthday cake. It can easily be doubled and put in a 9" x 13" pan.

This is a yummy coffee cake! I had to use a 9x9 pan, so it didn't seem that the crumble covered the top real well, but it was still very good. Thanks for sharing!

This is now our new Christmas tradition... I added a little bit of coconut and it was awesome! I saw our daughter going for 2nd, an 3rds. might try to add a little bit of chopped dates the next time I make this coffee cake. This cake is moist and delicious!!

Super easy and very good. Everyone at work loved it. I could actually reduce the sugar in the filling and it would still be great. I used a 9" round cake pan, and it was a little difficult to spread the batter all the way to the edges, but it still worked!
