  1. Excellent Texture and Taste! - It worked for me as an overnight cake and when I chose to make it, per some reviews, without resting the batter overnight. I have used both Pecans and Walnuts. Either way, it was delish. TWEAKS: I used 4 TABLS. BUTTERMILK POWDER mixed with the dry mixture and the 1 Cup Milk with the wet mixture. It worked perfectly. I also added 1 Tsp. Vanilla. I didn't use the Nutmeg. We don't care for the flavor. This receipe is speciple and a keeper. Thank you Breezermom.
  2. Excellent coffee cake. Light and tender crumb. I didn't refrigerate, simply put together and baked per instructions. A great alternative to sour cream coffee cakes. Breezermom, thanks for the recipe!
  3. This was a very good and easy cake. I think next time I will add some vanilla to the batter!
  4. I hope it did not matter that I did not let it sit overnight but just gave it a couple of hours over lunchtime !! We loved it and the texture of the cake was soft and velvety. We ate it warm with custard.
  5. Moist and crunchy, this is a great overnight breakfast! The tang of the buttermilk meshes well with the nutmeg and cinnamon, and the streusel 'like' topping was wonderful. I followed the directions as written and have tucked this away for future breakfasts. You've made my life a bit easier, especially on a holiday! Thanks for sharing, breezermom.
