"This is really good. Simplicity is the key - I cooked it in about 30 minutes."
"You are right, Yogi! This IS good! I made this for Christmas morning breakfast on the spur of the moment. Couldn't imagine it would be all that wonderful considering the ingredients, but it is great! People couldn't stop eating it. It took about 10 minutes longer than the recipe says for it to bake."
"fast, easy, moist and very delicious! this would be perfect for christmas morning...no hassle at all! "
"This is a wonderful coffee cake!!"
"This cake is very easy to make and quite tasty but does leave a strange aftertaste which baffles me a bit. Maybe it is the cinnamon? I took the advice of others and baked it for longer (an extra 8 mins or so). I also used butter as we don't get Crisco in the Netherlands (where I live). I also made it with a layer of mix then half the cinnamon etc. I'll try this again with a few changes because it was so easy and shows enormous potential. Thank you"
"Wow, I love, love, love this cake!! I made it almost as written but used real butter instead of Crisco and added 1 tsp. of vanilla to the batter. I also did what another reviewer suggested and put half the batter in my 8x8 pan then sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar then put the other half of the batter on top, baked for the 35 min. and spread the top with the butter and sprinkled with more cinnamon sugar. It is a nice little cake not to dense not to crumbly not to sweet, just a great cake to have with a cup of coffee, in fact my 8 year old had two piece as his breakfast. Thanks for the great little recipe."
"I made this on 9/05/08 for the "Breakfast Anytime Challenge " in the Cooking Photo Forum. I used butter flavored crisco as suggested in the recipe.Other than that I followed the recipe as written, except when I got to the part about the margarine on the top. I didn't know if the margarine should be melted or not,so I just added it to the top and spread it around with the bottom of a spoon. It did however take 45 minutes for it to get done in the middle. The taste was just sweet enough to be very good with a cup of coffee or a glass of milk. This is "simplicity at it it best".Thanks for posting and, "Keep Smiling :)""
"I thought this batter was way too dry, so I added 1 cup drained pineapple chunks and topped a mixture of 2 tbsp margarine and 1/3 cup brown sugar. Baked 30 mins at 350 -- awesome flavour -- thanks!"
"This was good. It is pretty quick to make, but it's not very sophisticated. I want to play aroung with it to see if I can add some flair to it. "
"Definitely an easy coffee cake to make, and you are sure to find all the ingredients in your pantry. I agree with many other reviewers that this cake takes and additional 10 minutes to cook. Also, for my taste, this was a little too sweet."
"Excellent, easy and fast - I added a bit more cinnamon/sugar and baked for 10 minutes longer and it was wonderful!!! Took it with us to the cabin and all our friends couldn't stop raving about the taste. Thanks Angieloo for the hint about layering the cinnamon/sugar. "
"high marks for ease and taste. excellent recipe. i love cinnamon and did add it to the batter for extra spice."
"Everyone on the site has everything they need to make this cake right now in their kitchen--I'm sure of it! They should all go and make this modest, simple, little cake. I even messed with the recipe with success. I used 40% light butter for everywhere butter or margarine or Crisco is called for, half splenda, and all soy milk. It is just fantastic. Great, soft, moist consistency. It may need a bit more time in the oven, as others have said. I made it in a glass pie plate, a perfect size for it. A BIG winner!"
"This is a really good and easy coffee cake. My seven yr old son even ate it. Getting him to eat something with the word "coffee" in the title is amazing. He liked it so much that he wanted to take some with him to daycare for the other kids. My daycare provider said it must have been good because she didn't even get try it. I made it the second time around and put half of the batter in the pan and then sprinkled it with cinnamon/sugar and then added the rest of the batter and some more cinnamon/sugar on top. Gave it more of a streusel effect. It did take me about 35 minutes bake time to get it done. Thanks for the great recipe!"
"My kids love this recipe. It's one of the rare recipes they will get up early to make on sunday morning."
