This is a YUMMY coffee cake! It's made with sweet vanilla yogurt and cinnamon! I absolutely LOVE coffee cake! My mom gave me this recipe and I'll never go back to store bought coffee cakes again!

Spread on your remaining batter out of the mixing bowl and spread evenly. Next, top with the remaining topping mixture and bake at 350F for 35 minutes, or until knife comes out clean. ENJOY!
Not bad for a reasonably virtuous cake. Rose nicely and smelled good. Did have a kind of coarse texture, but it wasn't bad. The yogurt-soda idea is interesting and the first time I have ever seen it. Thanks!
Wonderful flavor here, but then, whats not to love about cinnamon, coffee and cake? I used 1/4 cup of a heart healthy margarine and a 1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce for the butter and half the ask for amount of Splenda Brown Sugar. The end product is truly yummy. The cake is tender and nicely moist. I got a very course texture and that might be due to the yogurt and soda or it might be the way it's supposed to turn out. Either way the cake earned top marks for flavor and ease of preparation.
My first 2008 recipe! This was delicious with a "melt in your mouth texture." My daughter who is not a coffee cake fan enjoyed this, too! The coffee flavor with the cocoa makes a wonderful filling/topping. I made in a spring form pan and it made for easy serving, without losing any topping in the process. Thanks Jazzie, for posting.
