Usually I make a recipe exactly as written, at least the first time. Today I was extremely distracted by a needy 4 year old and ended up putting in extra butter and extra flour. I substitured walnuts for pecans because someone ate all the pecans and didn't put them on the shopping list. (Who, me?) I also doubled the streusel because you can never have too much of a good thing.
That being said, with all my goofs, this STILL came out excellent! This will be my go-to recipe for Sunday coffee cake from now on. Thanks for sharing!
Really great cake! Took a chance - made this Christmas morning on a whim - wow - beautiful - even at 6000 ft and no recipe alteration!!! Fabulous!!! This will definitely be a regular recipe in our home!
This cake is wonderful! The cinnamon scent and flavor is spot on perfect. I loved the addition of the pecans and only skipped on the raisins in the topping as it is something we just don't love. I used a 9x9" pan and it took 42 minutes to bake through. The cake was moist and the ribbons of cinnamon throughout made it so enjoyable with the morning coffee (and my afternoon coffee as a mid-day treat). So glad I found this during ZWT7.
This is so good! I love that the cinnamon is in the cake as well as the topping and love the addition of the pecans to the streusel! The scent of cinnamon wafting through the house as it was baking couldn't be done fast enough! *lol* I used a 9" square pan and it took the full 40 minutes to bake. Will definitely enjoy this again, thank you for sharing! Made for My 3 Chefs Fall 08'
