Not very good, dry and the taste was just blah. No one would eat it although I did have a piece with coffee but threw the rest away.
This was so good! I was afraid I was not going to get a piece tonight. I took it to the dinner theater at school tonight for the musical. Bye, Bye Birdie, the kids did good. Back to the cake. When I put the batter in the pan I made a well so I could spoon the pecan mixture into. The put the rest of the batter on the top. It is a heavier. It sure taste good with cool whip on top. A bite of cake some pecan mixture and cool whip equals YUMM!! With my oven I'll need to check for doneness at 50 minutes next time I make this. I'm glad I found Glaucia in the Orphanage of the *PAC Fall 2007* game.
Very yummy bread...and you can't tell that it has less butter than the original coffee cake recipe. Thank you for sharing, GlÃ¡ucia! ;)
