"This is great breakfast cake. The topping should be gooey. Cherry pie filling can be added as a topping for variety."

"I grew up in a suburb of Phila. We had a German bakery called Neffles. They made this cake. My friends mom would let us eat the top off of it which was an amazing treat. I made this cake this morning and it's exactly as I remembered it. I made the dough in my bread machine. It was easy to spread it out into a 13x9 glass pan sprayed with Pam. The topping was easy to spread and it only took 20 minutes in my oven. Pure bliss! I want to thank you for the fond memory and a delicious recipe that I know I will make again."
"Followed the recipe to the letter and found that maybe my oven was too hot, it was darker then your picture and the sugar made a crisp top and the gooey was not yellow but oh man the gooey was good. I am wondering did I do something wrong I will make this again and lower the temperature."
"This cake was wonderful. Just as I remembered it growing up. So easy. It didn't last long at our house. Planning to make another one tonight for breakfast tomorrow. Thanks for bringing this long time favorite back."
"I saw this and had to quick go make it. It was like walking down to Halls Bakery on the corner of Franklin Ave. on Sunday morning with my Oma when I visited. Thank you for the memory, now if someone could find a recipe for German potato salad made with honey vinegar I will think I have died and gone to heaven!!! Thank you again, it was wonderful!!!! "
"This is really good and pretty easy to boot! I love the rich yeast cake underneath the gooey buttery goodness and crunchy topping. The goo kind of reminds me of melted marshmallow... Mmm...So wonderful!"
"Topping is very sweet and very scrumptious (especially if you ask the kids). I was glad the yeasted cake underneath was much less sweet because the topping was more than enough. Baked it this morning for breakfast. It's all gone. Guess I'll have to make it again. Soon. Thanks."
"My husband wanted to give this cake more stars and says the gooey part of the cake is awesome.:)"
"ABSOLUTELY DIVINE! AAA+++ all the way- thanks!"
"Easy to make in a busy kitchen! Great with coffee the next day after chilling in the refrigerator (cleaner to eat). Took it 8 x 8 to an Octoberfest and it all went - even though I was worried about the gooey mess in the pan. LOVE that it makes TWO! Co-workers smile :)"
"I really had the hankering for some butter cake so I went searching and searching on here trying to find one that intrigued me, and when I saw that this one was gooey and I saw the photo I was like EEE! I'm making this!! This was my first time cooking with yeast too, so I made sure I followed every instruction perfectly, and it turned out wonderfully. Unfortunately I couldn't slice it though because my topping was waaay too gooey, but that was fine, my partner and I just sat down with spoons and ate it out of the tray LOL. Thank you for a great recipe :) :)"
