My grandmother used to bake this for me in the early 1950s. Use 2 pans and push the butter chunks through the batter. Loved it for more than 70 yrs.

I've made this a bunch over the years, never fails and is always great.

I have made this several times in the last month or so. It is really easy and absolutely delicious as written! I have switched the recipe up slightly with the addition of blueberries, or chunks of peaches or chocolate chips! No it's not too sweet. And always make extra topping. I saw some one didn't like it because of the taste of the baking soda, hopefully they realized it was supposed to be baking powder. I was initially skeptical of the 2 tablespoons of baking powder, but it works. This is definitely a keeper.

Cake surprisingly had risen a lot, this was probably due to the excess amount of baking soda. Overall it tasted okay and was pretty moist, but it tasted kind of weird. I would make this again, however with less baking soda and egg replacer.

Turned out pretty good, I was half asleep when I made it so only used the recipe as a general guideline. I made half a recipe and put it in a smaller pan, used less sugar and half a thawed out banana, added some sugar free chocolate chips and some walnuts, and used a lot more cinnamon. I did use a full tablespoon of baking powder and I was all out of eggs. At 9 servings it is only 124 calories each. Not bad.

Are 2 Tablespoons of baking powder correct in this recipe? Seems like more than usual.

I like to follow a recipe exactly as written the first time I make something new. As it is I don't see myself changing a thing. Moist, slightly crumbly (as a coffee cake should be) and flavorful!

Just what I was looking for. I liked how the cake was very fluffy. Good flavor.

This recipe was superb! I noticed that it didn't include an egg, so I added one in. The topping was the best part, full of flavor and sweetness. I don't have any complaints or suggestions whatsoever. Super happy with this one.

Made this Fri. night to have Sat. morning. One of the better coffee cake recipes I've tried. Just had a piece today (Sun.) and it still tastes very fresh. I give it an A-. Everything is great about it, except the pieces are a little too crumbly.

Wow! The whole family LOVED this recipe. I used two 8 inch round cake pans instead of the square pans called for. I doubled the topping recipe, grated apple into the cake (It gives it a bit of a unique flavor, plus it can now be called Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake), added an egg (really solves the crumbly problem), and used a little less milk and more butter. Wow! My little brother says he loves the cake more than the homemade chocolate chip cookies I make (which means a lot!) I had fun baking the cake, and it turns out great!

I did not make the recipe yet but I noticed most similar recipes uses 2 teaspoons of baking soda so I was wondering if this recipe had an error in saying 2 tablespoons of baking soda?

This coffee cake is AWESOME. Good cinnamon flavor. Buttery. A little crumbly.

My family loves this cake! I added one egg so it's not so crumbly. Tastes like a cinnamon roll, yum!

I'm 16 and I made this. This is like my first attempt at coffee cake. I had fun making it but not cleaning my mess. This tastes absolutely amazing.

Made this tonight and it was delicious! I added a chopped medium apple between the batter and the topping for a little extra flavor and moisture.

Liked it. Very easy. A little more crumbly than I'd prefer but that's my only complaint. Flavor was perfect.

Thanks. It uses ingredients that we had (and usually) always have around. And it turned out terrific. The cake itself had a light texture and the topping is to die for. A little more topping mixture next time maybe.

This coffeecake is pretty good, just not special. I think I'd prefer it with some fruit and less brown sugar and cinnamon.
