Crunchy Breakfast Cake

"This is very yummy, either for breakfast or for an after dinner dessert. The topping is crunchy and the cake is soft and fluffy. What more could you want from a cake?! It came from a Klutz cookbook."

    I printed this recipe five years ago and was just flipping through my cook book before a friend came over for coffee and decided to give it a try. I wish I hadn't waited! It was very flavorful and moist and was a hit with the kids too. I didn't have a 9x9 pan, so I used a pie pan. I also added some vanilla (coffee cake just seemed like it should have vanilla) and it turned out wonderfully. Great recipe!

    I made this today for my husband and he almost ate the entire 9 x 9 pan of it. It's quick and easy to make with very little hassle. I also added just a touch of cinnamon to the cake batter. It turned out perfect with no problem. We will be making this again!!!

    We thought this cake was terrific. Some of us found it too rich and sweet just out of the oven, so it would be advised to cut small pieces. The sweetness mellowed after a day and, while the topping was less crunchy, the overall taste was more appealing. I reduced the amount of sugar in the topping to 1/2 c. Great little cake that goes together without much fuss, and tastes wonderful with a fresh cup of coffee!

    This was a very good breakfast cake. I would of given 5 stars but the topping melted into the cake. Other then that it was great. Thanks
