    Do you add frozen berries or let them thaw?

    SUPER recipe! I've made it twice for us, twice for others and everyone LOVES it. It IS best warm out of the oven, but still very, very good cold. Be careful to just lightly press the topping, otherwise it turns hard during baking (it's still yummy, though). Also, if you double the recipe (in 9x13 pan), you do NOT need to increase the cooking time -- I cooked 50 min & it browned too much on the bottom. Next time I doubled it, I cooked it 40 min and it was fine. Thanks for sharing this!

    Lovely and very berry! I used frozen mixed berries and cherries and added a dash each of nutmeg and cloves with the cinnamon and a bit of almond extract with the vanilla. Phenomenal flavor and wonderful delicate moist crumb. And the struesel topping is sooooo good!

    I make coffee cakes for our customers for mother's day at our garden center. This is one recipe that is a specific request by our customers.

    This is really great coffee cake. I use 1/3 cup canola oil in place of the melted butter. I also use half whole wheat and half white flour and the cake still turns out really great. I sometimes a layer of softened cream cheese, sugar and vanilla before adding the topping to cancel out any health benefits.

    This cake was amazing! The only reason I'm giving it four stars instead of five is because I thought there was too much cinnamon in the streusel topping and it overpowered everything else. Next time (and there WILL be a next time!), I'll cut back to probably 1 tsp of cinnamon. Like many reviewers, I cut cold butter into the streusel, rather than melting it. My only other change to the recipe was to substitute half of the butter in the cake (1/4 cup) for unsweetened applesauce, just to make it a little healthier. I don't think anyone would have known, though-- the cake was moist, rich, and very delicious!

    Excellent recipe, my husband told me that I had better put this recipe in a safe place! I subbed 1/4 cup rice bran oil and (an extra) 1/4 cup milk for the melted butter in the batter and it worked just fine. I used frozen boysenberries, which were just delicious. I agree that the topping is more like a gooey dough, I think next time I will use less melted butter in the topping. Thanks for a wonderful recipe! :-)

    The aroma was very enticing. The final product ...very morish! I substituted strawberry yogurt for the milk and used a combination of blueberries and raspberries. Definitely will keep this one - may try to use brandied peaches instead of berries next time.

    I made this last night and used the new Splendra for baking instead of sugar as i had some frozen fruit in freezer i wanted to use up...it was very simple and turned out great...you would never know it was made without sugar...
