Excellent coffee cake. Loved the combination of cinnamon and hazelnut. I only made half of the recipe as it is difficult to convert standard recipes to gluten free when there are more than two cups of flour (they don't always turn out right). Will definitely make this again as it made for a nice Sunday morning breakfast. Thanks for posting this BK! Made for Went to Market Tag.
Extremely yummy cake, BK! What a treat! It was very easy to make, and I know I'll make it again. Thanks so much for sharing it. Made for Went to Market Tag.
Another winner, Baby Kato! I made this exactly as written, and it was divine. Perfect with a cup of coffee (or tea). It was quite easy, too! I will be enjoying this again.
