This is easy to make and produces my favorite type of cake, light and not too sweet. I was unimpressed with the crumb topping so in the future I will not reserve anything and make my own streusel. Thanks, Amy.....4/6/13 edit. I just read how harsh my comment sounded about the topping, not what I intended at all. It is an easy change and in no way detracts from the cake itself. I WAS impressed by how moist and flavorful this cake is the second day. Read More

This cake was ok but I have to admit being disappointed in it. Its simple enough to make for sure but theres no flavor to it - and thats with me adding cinnamon to the batter and topping. And it cooked alot faster than the 35 minutes as well. After roughly 20 minutes I could already smell it and I knew it was close to being done. I won't be throwing it out - it will get eaten - but I highly doubt I'll be making this again Read More

I tried it but I replaced 1/4 cup of flour with 3/4 cup of ground almonds and added 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract.I did not put the crumble on top ,when it was still warm from the oven I brushed the top with 2 tablespoons of honey as a glaze. It was a hit with my family and friends and goes down a treat with a cup of coffee or tea :) Read More

I used this recipe as a base then added my own flair to it. I replaced the butter with a honey butter recipe using lavender honey, which made this coffee cake to DIE for! Not to mention makes the crumb topping even more delicious. Great recipe overall and will definitely be making again! Read More

Just as described by Amy this coffee cake is simple and wonderful. The recipe leaves room for individualization by each cook. I will try spices next time cinnamon and nutmeg and perhaps add fresh fruit as the season progresses. Very versatile! Read More

Great coffee cake. I made this this morning because my in laws came over for coffee. For the topping I added cinnamon brown sugar and cocoa powder. I also substituted brown sugar for half the white sugar. With the changes I made this recipe gets five stars. My in laws are very impressed with it. As am I. Read More

Love this! So easy to make and so tasty. I added a tsp or so of cinnamon to the batter and then another half tsp to the reserved butter crumbs, and this was just perfect. Lovely texture and great flavor! I didn't have to bake quite as long, only about 30 minutes, so it's probably a good idea to check on this early, depending on your oven. Great way to use up buttermilk! Read More

As is this cake tastes simply wonderful without any fru fru. Sometimes we want a simple cake without frosting or a million spices/ingredients. I don't care for "crumb topping" so I just combined it all and it was just fine. I highly suggest reading the review by Lorraine Hussain written on September 16 2014. The addition of almond flour/meal and almond extract is in the perfect proportions and tastes so comforting. In addition to Lorraine's suggestions I sprinkled sliced almonds over the top before baking-delish! This is a great basic recipe; easily tweaked to get the flavor you like. Read More

this is a yummy cake. I added Victorian Epicure apple pie spice and it tastes like apple pie. going to try the ginger bread season next time. thus would taste good served with whip cream. you could also add chocolate chips or any variety of baking chips to it. I think the possibilities are endless with this recipe. I think I'm even going to try substituting the 1/4 cup flour for Cocoa next time. So many ideas to try with this cake Read More
