Found this wonderful cake while surfing the Net. Have try it and it was an instant hit with my family and friends. It is really good with coffee or tea. Want to share it with anyone who care to give it a try

p/s  Some said that it taste like Starbucks coffee cake. Haven't try the coffee cake at Starbucks so I couldn't really comment. But one thing I can say is that it is easy to make and it taste good.

Happy Baking
Irene

I made this recipe today.  It's a great recipe, the cake is moist, not dry like many coffee cakes.  The only difference I made was the recipe called for 1/2 cup butter for the topping and I used 1/4 cup.
Delicious. Thanks for posting it.

Phyllis
