Didn't have any trouble with the batter. Used leftover apricot butter that I'd made for another recipe. It's an okay coffee cake but prefer a less dense batter.

I have been making this recipe for over 15 years. The "batter" is hard to spread and it is easy to over cook the cake because the filling seems so liquidy when pulling the cake out of the oven....but it has been the most requested breakfast dish I have ever made. It's worth a 2nd try if it doesn't turn out the first time.

Bad news. I agree with Yuck!! It was dry and tasteless. I used super soft butter and didn't overbake it. Don't think it was operator error either. I won't try this one again.

Not sure how some of the cooks could have messed this up. It was great. I also added a tsp of almond flavoring to the batter. Super easy and yummy.

I made this recipe and the bottom was very dry and plain testing. What disappointment.
