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.
