As my friend said, " I could just wallow in this cake it is so good". Left out the apricots and had to substitute yogurt for the sour cream.

I found the recipe on the inside of the LOL butter carton and have made it twice - both times to great applause by my family. Neither cake lasted longer than a day!

This cake is absolutely delicious. I substituted the streusel with cream cheese filling (cream cheese, egg yolk, sugar, almond extract) and the glaze with streusel crumbs (sugar, flour, butter, and sliced almonds). A family favorite. Definite keeper.

I made this for a family breakfast and it was a hit.

The first time I made this recipe I found from the inside of the LO Lakes butter carton - my family and I just loved it. I misplaced the empty carton and am sure glad I looked up the LOL website as i was craving to have it again. I am going to try it with the apricots today since I have them at home.. Let's see how this one turns out.- thanks LOL

I found this recipe on the inside of a pound package of butter. It did not have "apricots" as an ingredient...just toasted sliced almonds and brickle bits. Have made cake twice and it's really perfect for Sunday brunch or evening coffee.

From the Test Kitchen... J.D. I am glad to help you. The almond brickle bits ingredient are found in the baking section in the area where you find chocolate chips and nuts. There is one variety that is chocolate covered toffee bits and then there is the variety called for in this recipe that is just the almond brickle bits. If you cannot find them you could substitute some additional nuts in the recipe.

the 12th ingredient on the left side of the land o lakes butter carton says "1/4 cup almond toffee bits". Where the heck do you get them ??? I couldn't even find them on the internet. My zip code is 43015. Any help will be appreciated. Over and out, J D

I made this coffee cake twice for football weekends. It was a huge hit each time. The dried apricots were eliminated & 1 tsp.vanilla, replaced 1 tsp. almond extract. Since I like a heavier glaze, I used 1/2 cup powdered sugar & 1/2 tsp. almond extract, with, 4 tsp. milk. It's quick, easy & delicious. Very moist & holds well for several days.
