    I used two 5” x 9” loaf pans, cooked them for 55 minutes and they turned out terrific!

    Way better than anything you would find in any coffee shop I will tell you that. Just an absolute treat to the senses. Do yourself and those around you a service and make this immediately.

    The coffee cake turns out to be surprisingly delicious! I am blown away by how moist & scrumptious it is! I followed the recipe & directions precisely, & it turns out perfect. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.

    Super easy and tastey! I had to add an extra 15 mins to my cook time, could be because of the type of pan I used (aluminum recyclable "aka disposable"), but it has been a hit with my family each time. The first time I made it, I hand mixed the cake batter. The second time I made it, I used my mixer. Both times it came out great.

    Easy. I halved and added pecans to the cinnamon sugar layer. I didn’t use my mixer, hand mixed and turned out great.

    The crumbs on top didn’t turn out, other than that it was okay

    I’d forgotten how much I love coffee cake and can really regard it as my top favorite cake. I had made a bunch of other recipes before this one and they all missed the mark, except this one. This particular coffee cake recipe is absolutely perfect in every way. This is a super soft and moist cake with a prefect crumble on top and amazing flavor. This is what coffee cake should be. I'll forever be returning to this recipe. Thank you to whomever it was for putting this recipe together and for sharing it with us. This is the cake I'm asking for on my next birthday, even though I'll be making it again before then.

    I made this in my 8x8 pan by halving the recipe and adjusting the cooking time. It came out so delicious and is such a versatile piece. I would be curious to see how much easier it may be to add the batter on top of the cinnamon sugar layer by piping it in - I will definitely try this the next time I make this recipe.

    Loved this recipe and it was super easy. I only had baking powder and no baking soda and it was still amazing and moist

    Delicious! I didn’t have enough sour cream, so I subbed with Greek yogurt, and it was so good!
    delicious! easy recipe and it makes huge portions.
