Tasty and everyone enjoyed. It definitely has a buttery pound cake texture. I added a tablespoon of butter when melting the chocolate and sugar for the streusal to help with the thickness. The streusal comes together almost like dough, so I just crumbled it to sprinkle it in the loaf and on top. I used one large loaf pan and used the remaining batter in small square muffin tins (very cute and turned out great!) I baked in the loaf pan for 45 mins and 20 mins in the square muffin tins. I also took out a cup of batter and mixed in about 1/4 cup of cocoa to make a swirled coffee cake. I didn't use all the streusal to make it less sweet, so I wanted some extra color to it...but I don't think it did much for the loaf. My personal opinion I think this recipe has too much fat with all the butter, eggs, sour cream, and chocolate. I've made other good coffee cake recipes that don't use as much fat, but give it a try if you don't mind!Reply
Really delicious coffee cake! and the recipe was very easy to follow, though I found the same issue with the consistency of the streusal as another reviewer, that it came out very thick and un-"streusal-like". But I put it in as directed (more in globs than anything else) and it baked right in, and who knows the difference when you're eating it!? I also made the entire amount the recipe called for and it made two loaves perfectly. All in all a very sweet and delicious treat! :)Reply
