I would change the sliced almonds to slivered almonds, and definitely toast them first. Otherwise, this recipe was a huge hit and easy to make. It will have a permanent place in my repertoire.
Baking with margarine produces moist cakes and chewy cookies. For consistent high quality results, remember to use margarine (80% fat), not a spread product.
Fun to prepare and impressive to share, these coffee cake recipes are perfect to serve guests, fresh out of the oven. Adding hints of chocolate, fruit and nuts really take an ordinary coffee cake to the next level.
