A Good MistakeMay 28, 2013 By tiffanygottdiner
This coffee cake was very good! I did make a mistake however, but a good one. I didn't have time to let the butter soften to room temperature, so I put it in the microwave for about 8 seconds on low power and it melted a little bit, but mostly just softened. The texture of the topping ended up more dough than crumbs, and so did the result after baking it. It wasn't a crumb topping, but it sort of swirled into the rest of the cake, without mixing altogether. I thought it was better this way! Turned out kind of like Starbuck's coffee cake if they didn't have the crump topping. Excellent recipe!!

In response to Mommyof3Girlies' review: I think baking can certainly be tweaked and ingredients altered. I do it all the time! I make banana bread that is dairy free or sugar free, etc. I use oil instead of butter and coconut milk instead of regular milk. I disagree completely with your review. Personal taste, where you live (high altitude, high humidity, etc.) availability of ingredients, has a definite impact on recipes and they NEED to be tweaked accordingly. Maybe some people like a heavier topping, maybe some people like a dry/crumbly topping. It just depends!

It is very simpleNovember 10, 2012 By lenafelicitas
This receipe is very simple to make, I thought the topping was going to be too much so I did not put all of it, but I wish I had because some of the crumble sinks into the cake... Not a bad thing but I wish i had more on top...

I made this for my family this morning and it was amazing. I too followed the other reviews and increased the ingredients for the topping and it was perfect. Perfect for a Fall morning.

Yum!October 05, 2012 By bscarbro
This is the tastiest coffee cake recipe I have made yet. I do agree with other reviews the streusel topping isn't crumbly at all and should be tweaked. I also agree that the cake should be more dense. Regardless of the differences from traditional coffee cakes this recipe is absolutely delicious and I will be making it again.

Good recipe, had to modify topping portionsJuly 20, 2012 By KD333
This is a very good recipe. I've made it 4x now. The cake portion has turned out perfectly every time I made it. The topping portion was not crumbly and way too heavy based on original measurements. I wasn't sure if it was because I am in the south with heavy humidity. After 4 times, I've finally tweaked the topping to the below measurements. It came out perfect. 3/4 cup brown sugar (revised from 1/2 cup originally 1/2 cup sifted flour (revised from 1/4 cup originally) 1/4 cup softened butter 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon (revised from 1 tsp originally).

make it upside down!June 28, 2012 By krystamartin
This is very yummy but I will agree that the streusal topping is a bit heavy. It turned out a bit ugly looking, so I would make it upside down if I were to make it again.

Very GoodMarch 17, 2012 By mommyof3girlies
This is great! turned out perfect. When your baking you should always remember that the ingredients need to be exact. You need to measure everything out perfect or it will not turn out. Baking is not like cooking. It's much harder and recipes really can't be altered. You really can't substitute things when baking. If this cake didn't turn out for you, you probably did something wrong. A pinch of this and a pinch of that in baking doesn't work. Another thing to remember is that all your ingredients should be at room temp. It will make all the difference in the world. I would try it again and follow the recipe. I bet you'll have good luck the second time.

I have questions for you all??/February 06, 2012 By wolywig
I have made this recipe many many times just as it is written sometimes sifting sometines not always came out perfect!!! Until this past Sat(2-4-2012) I peeked at half ot the time as I always do & sawsomething strange< there were tiny bubbles all over the top of the batter???(usually there would be the topping??? so when time up no topping on top & the body of cake about 1/2 inch high??? & ALL topping on bottom that I had to scrape off??? Taste same really good!! The only thing that was different this time was I used NEW baking powder(bought at Aldi's with use by date of 2013) & I had been using my old baking powder(use by 2009) so what is the answer??? I am about to go nuts over this!!!!!

Great cakeSeptember 25, 2011 By NOLAbookie
There are not a lot of recipies without nuts, fruit, and/or sour cream. This one is a great recipe. The user who said the topping sank to the bottom must have made an error in cooking. It is a very thick batter. The topping sat on top, and I popped it into the oven (which I started pre-heating when I started cooking). It came out great!!

This is not a coffee cake!!August 17, 2011 By mrslockman
I made this following the exact directions and it basically came out as plain yellow cake. Coffee cake should be crumbly and dense. This was way too fluffy, and although it did taste good, it was NOT what I was looking for. Also, the people on here were right about the ""crumbly"" topping. It turns to liquid and sinks into the cake. Wouldn't try this again.

yummy!October 05, 2010 By courtromo
I doubled the entire recipe to make a dozen and a half muffins. I switched the butter in the recipe with veg oil and the vanilla with apple juice. I also cut three small apples into small pieces, mixed them with a little brown sugar and cinn, and baked them for about 15 min. I folded them into the batter. The muffins came out delicious. They were a nice hearty breakfast and my kids loved them!!!

Easy to modifySeptember 18, 2010 By g0lfg1rl
Loved this recipe. My goal was to make a coffee cake for a bible study, wanted to use up some rhubarb, and didn't have a lot of time. I'm lazy, so just mixed all the dry ingredients, did not sift the flour, then added the liquids then mixed in a few handfuls of 1/4 size pieces of rhubarb (no additional sugar). Added the topping the last 10 minutes and it turned out great! I was asked to share the recipe. My suggestion would be to decrease the amount of butter in the topping to make it more crumbly. Would definitely make again, since there's no ingredients not in my kitchen.

Loved it!July 13, 2010 By Azzurri6
Just like everyone else said, this is a great recipe because it's easy to make, and all the ingredients are things you'd probably have around the kitchen anyways (though I was actually out of cinnamon, so I used a pinch of nutmeg and it still tasted great). Baked it at 375 for 28 minutes in a 9"" round pan and it came out moist and fluffy. The only issue I had was with the topping... it was actually more wet as opposed to crumbly, so I did have a bit of sinking, but it actually still worked out really well anyways. I would definitely reccomend this for a nice, easy recipe. It came out better than I even expected.

Good and easy coffee cakeJune 19, 2010 By littlehoss
This is a nice and easy coffee cake. The topping bakes into a thick, gooey shell and I generally prefer a drier, more crumbly topping, but this isn't bad. The cake batter is quite thick so there should be no problems with the topping sinking to the bottom while baking as some reviewers mentioned. If that happens, you almost certainly did not measure something properly, probably too much milk, making the batter too thin. If your cake falls, check your baking powder to make sure it's not expired...this WILL make a difference. Also, when baking it's advisable to use an oven thermometer, do not trust your ovens internal thermometer, they are almost ALWAYS wrong. You want to be absolutely certain your oven has reached the proper temp before baking.

Finally - A way to get the topping to stay on top!May 13, 2010 By NorthwestFudgeFactory
With 8 cakes to make, I tried adding the topping towards the end, but found it came out too hard and too thick. I refrigerated the topping since it wasn't terribly crumbly, and found that by taking the lump of cold topping and using a cheese grater, I could add some to mix into the cake, and grated the rest on top. The longer strands of thin topping prevented it from sinking to the bottom and it could be done all at once without having to add ingredients part way through!

Absolutely Perfect. Just follow the recipe!April 22, 2010 By Skillette
I got nervous about making this reading all the comments about dry cake and mysterious sinking topping. I have no idea why these reviewers did not have luck with their cakes. I made this EXACTLY as the recipe is written (i.e. did not try to substitute, add, or subtract anything)- including the sifting. I made it in a buttered 8x8 glass pan. I baked for the shorter time (25 minutes), checked with a toothpick and removed immediately. This is exactly what I would want from a coffee cake. Not dense, not fluffy, and certainly not dry- just right. I resisted the temptation to add more topping than called for, and I wasn't disappointed! There was plenty of cinnamon-crumbly goodness- and the topping stayed put. A cross-section of the cake showed a very distinct topping and cake, not at all blended together or sunken. My advice is to make this one just as it is: Perfect! *Remember: Coffee cake is not a box pudding cake. It is supposed to be a bit more dense, less moist, more crumbly. It also doesn't look like a typical round cake with a flat top. It should be bumpy and crumbly on top!

great with changes to topping bake timeMarch 18, 2010 By Jpdanceart
I just made this cake and did not read all of the reviews. My topping fell to the bottom just like everyone said. Next time I will wait to add the topping like the other reviews say.

Really good...with some changesNovember 28, 2009 By sydneyla
I really liked this cake, and didn't think it was too heavy. Maybe because I used cake flour? I was too lazy to sift, so I used the cake flour instead. I doubled the recipe, as others had suggested. I wound up not using about 25% of it, so I'd suggest, instead of doubling, do 1.5. I also followed the suggestions to put some topping in the middle - thanks to whoever made that suggestion! Also, when I turned on my oven, I set to 350 instead of 375 (accidental). Everything turned out well, though - I noticed the temp about halfway through so I adjusted it to 375 about 15 minutes in. But the cake was moist enough for me, didn't burn on the sides; it did drop some when I added some topping in the middle, but next time I'll wait a little longer before putting the final topping on. I'll definitely make this again, though. The fam loved it!

Easy and deliciousSeptember 28, 2009 By ckazubski
This cake was great, especially because it is made with ingredients you always have on hand. My topping only sank a little bit in the middle but then I had to bake it longer for that part to be done and the topping on the sides burned a little. Next time I will put the topping on about 10 minutes before the cake is done. I thought this cake was moist and had the perfect blend of butter and cinnamon.

really really goodSeptember 27, 2009 By ivelostmyself
this was so good. i made it in an 8x8 pan. i followed the directions as far as the ingredients, except i did double the topping. i put a layer of the cake, then 1/2 the topping and then the rest of the cake. i baked for 25 minutes and then added the rest of the topping. i was expecting it to actually be crumbly on top of the cake, and it wasnt because it all melted. but it was still REALLY good. my cake was really moist and i didnt add sour cream. i agree you need to let it cook for a bit before adding the topping. even the stuff in the middle of the cake fell to the bottom during baking. but really easy. really good.

Awesome cake!September 19, 2009 By katiea21
This is the first coffee cake I ever made and it turned out great. I doubled the recipe for the crumb topping and poured half of the cake batter in the pan and sprinkled half of the topping on the cake. I then poured the rest of the cake batter over the topping. I waited until about 23 minutes into the baking time to sprinkle the remaining crumb topping on the cake so it wouldn't melt like the other reviews explained. Turned out wonderful with a gooey filling in the middle and crumbs on top. One warning: do not eat two big pieces before running 7 miles...it makes for a very unpleasant run! :-D

So easy to make, and a huge hit!June 15, 2009 By mnichols79
I made this coffee cake for my co-workers, and everyone really loved it. I did make a few substitutions/additions. Instead of using melted butter in the cake, I used canola oil. I substituted milk for low fat buttermilk to give the cake a little bit of tang. And I know quite a few folks mentioned using sour cream, but instead I added about 4 tbsp of fat free vanilla yogurt. I also heeded the advice on many of the reviews and added the cinnamon crumb topping in the final 5-7 minutes of baking, and it turned out perfectly. I would definitely recommend this cake!

Yum!May 15, 2009 By julialancione
I was bored and wanted to bake something sweet so I looked up coffee cake recipes so I could have something to enjoy in the mornings. This recipe was so simple and used ingredients already in my kitchen. The result was really delicious, but I did change a few things. I used margarine instead of butter to cut down on some of the fat and also accidentally mixed the crumble mixture too much so i just added a bit more brown sugar and cinnamon to make it a little thicker. After that I poured it on top of the cake batter and swirled it around with a fork a bit for some patter on top. The only thing I would complain about is that some of the topping did melt to the bottom a bit. Still delicious and I will definitely make it again!

March 16, 2009 By vbrambila
I really enjoyed this recipe. I think it is delicious but I have made it twice and both times I had a problem with the topping. Instead of it being ""crumbly"" it turned out more creamy. I tried using two different types of butter and also tried putting it in the freezer before I used it as opposed to room temp. I'm not sure why this is happening but I will still continue to make this cake because it tastes very good.

February 23, 2009 By krystilmist
I didn't like this at all. The batter comes out thick, and when baked is heavy. Sits like a brick in my stomach. First time I made it it took a lot longer to cook, about 45+ min. Turned out my toaster oven is baking at a lesser temp. than it was set for. I thought that might be the problem, but it wasn't. I made it again in my oven and got the same results. The cinnamon sank to the bottom and was thick and sticky. The rim of cinnamon left on top got too crispy.

OK, so here's my two cents...February 22, 2009 By missbecs
I think this is a great recipe. It's quick and easy to make and the ingredients are staples in the cupboard, so they're always ready to go. I suggest taking another reviewers suggestion and adding some sour cream to add moisture to the recipe. As for the topping, this is what I'll be doing next time. I'm going to put the topping in the bottom of the pan and then pour the batter on top. Like another review said, it's like an upside-down coffee cake, but if you just plan it that way, then you won't be dissapointed. I hope that is helpful

Yummy & easy!January 18, 2009 By TeslaBaker
This recipe is very easy and quick to make. I made it last night for my daughter and her friend who was spending the night, and we all loved it! It was even better the next day heated up for breakfast. Part of the topping did sink into the batter a lil but that made it even better. The lil chunks of buttery cinnamon goodness melted into the cake making it delish! The cake is very tasty. I will most definitely be making this again, but next time I think I may add some chopped walnuts or almonds to the topping mix.

Try doing this, was unbelievably goodDecember 06, 2008 By Liam_Ward
Bake in an 8""x8"" square pan. Increase the butter in the batter to a half cup (as suggested by stephrobcan) but also add about 3-4 tablespoons of sour cream to the butter/sugar mix before blending with the flour. Tried this the second time I made it, cake was moist and delicious. Also, double the ingredients for the streusel topping and top at 25 minutes (baking another 5). Avoids the collapsing issues and looks and tastes more like streusel than a sheet of cinnamon sugar. Next time I'm going to try adding a layer of homemade raspberry jam, then the streusel. This is an outstanding coffee cake recipe, made even better by my suggested add-ons. My daughter said it was the best breakfast I'd ever made :)

Tonight I was in the mood to make something sweet, and fast. I searched for a coffee cake recipe and came upon this one. I did add some of my home canned apple pie filling on top of the dough before I sprinkled the topping on. It is excellent, and my husband loved it!

Ahhhhh it looked ugly!June 17, 2008 By EmilyChopin
Maybe this is my fault because I didn't test it out before the morning I had to have it...my boyfriend loves coffee cake and I made this recipe for his birthday but THE TOPPING TOTALLY CAVED IT. It is baking in my oven right now and I can tell you, it looks totally hideous. Topping is too heavy for this cake! Don't put it on until five minutes left for bake time or your cake will look like a fossil. It tastes really good, if you can get around the topping in the bottom.

Delicious & Easy!!June 08, 2008 By jdnames
Made this when my husband's family visited for 10 days in May. Since we run in age from 34 - 94, I knew I needed something that was easy and readily available for breakfast, with everyone waking up at different times. The receipe was such a hit, I had to made it 3x during their stay. It's easy, with all the ingrediants in the pantry. I did 1.5x the crumbs for variety, and it was even better. Continue to make this for guests, and thank you gifts for teams in the office.

I've never attempted making coffee cake before, it always seemed intimidating. This recipe was very simple and easy to follow. In no time I had delicious coffee cake. I liked it better heated up the next day. I may try one of the sour cream coffee cakes next time though, this one was a little drier than I'd like it to be. All in all it was great and I'll definitely be making it again!

It's great but I I changed itApril 23, 2008 By stephrobcan
We love this recipe but the crumb topping was too oily for us so I top it with straight cinnamon sugar and increased the butter in the recipe from 1/3 to 1/2 cup. I also usually add frozen blueberries with the flour. We have it for breakfast every Sunday.

I had problems. Help!December 02, 2007 By vipaka
I am not rating this recipe as 3*s, but rather my own results for it. I had some construction problems with it. I'd like to hear advice from anyone familiar with this recipe as to what my mistakes with it could've been. The dough was incredibly viscous. I could barely shape it. I know I used the correct amount of ingredients, and in the way described. I used a hand held beater, and the dough actually climbed up the beaters to the top! I had a hard time getting the dough off the beaters. Is this normal? I felt compelled to add milk to loosen it up. I had difficulties with the topping too, but that was due to my own neglect. I got so intent on mixing the batter I forgot to crumble the topping together and let it sit. Also the butter wasn't soft enough so I had trouble blending it with the sugar and cinnamon. Evenso, it was adequate in the end results. Also the cake was ok, although I feel that something was amiss in the preparation.

A couple of twistsNovember 22, 2007 By annaelena8
I love this recipe. It's just like the one I lost so many years ago when my favorite cookbook got ruined in storage. I've been trying to fine-tune other recipes ever since. I have always added finely chopped pecans to the streusel topping; but to explain to the next reviewer who said it was ""too heavy,"" yes, that's because of the pecans! What you do is chop them really fine, and then divide the topping in two parts. Put in half of the cake batter, then half of the topping, and run the tines of a fork through it to spread it. Then finish up with the other half of the batter and the last of the topping. That way it's not too heavy. Mmmmm!

Tastes Great, But...October 19, 2007 By buttongirl
I've made this recipe twice and both times I really loved the flavor. But the topping seems to be too heavy for the lightness of the cake. The first time I made it the topping was partially swallowed by the cake and the second time I made it the topping went straight to the bottom- so I had an upside down coffee cake- funny. I will definitely make it again because it is delicious and fluffy, but I think I'll add the streusel topping when there is only 5-10 minutes of baking time left. Oh, and I added cinnamon to the batter and chopped pecans to the streusel topping- yum!

I love coffee cakeJuly 26, 2007 By somegirl61636
So I make it all the time and try new recipes all the time. I added 1TSP of cream of tartar to the batter (which is EXCELLENT to use in cookies). I also made a new topping to go ontop of the cake after it was done cooking with 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup flour, 1/2 cup sugar and about 2 tbl of cinn. with about 2 tbls of melted butter... the original topping i put on wax paper, cover it with wax paper and pressed the pan on top of it to shape it to fit on top of the batter since it was kinda thick. anyway it turned out excellent.
