Recipe Comments & Reviews

This recipe came out great, I didn't make it with apple because I didn't have any on hand, so I replaced the apple with a cup of raspberries. I also didn't have any of the cinnamon sugar butter spread, so I just used regular butter and added vanilla to add some flavor to the cake. The topping I added some cinnamon, also had to add more flour and brown sugar because the amount in the recipe didn't make it crumbly. The cake came out really moist and the topping was just right not to sweet but just enough. Will be keeping this recipe, because it makes an awesome base recipe to build with.
This recipe turned out amazingly well! It's a delicious and moist cake with just the right amount of cinnamon for fall. The topping amount could be doubled if you chose to do so, but I sprinkle mine on with my fingers and the entire top does get covered. It's great for breakfast or as a yummy dessert. :)
This is delicious. Will make this again. I agree to double the recipe for the topping.
This is an easy and delicious recipe. The only change I will be making is to double the recipe for the topping.
I made two pans of this coffee cake, one for home and one for work. I followed the receipe to the letter except for adding an extra 1/2 apple because I like a lot of apple in my coffee cakes. The topping did not turn out like the picture on the first one I made. It was not crumbly enough. It still tasted good. I increased the flour to 1/2 cup for the topping on the second one and it turned out great (looked just like the picture).
This recipe came out wonderful! I'd serve this cake for breakfast, brunch, dessert, or any time I have a guest over.
