5 stars is an underestimation! Unbelievable, sign me up as an addict but after i replaced the sour cream with yoghurt, reduced the butter to 1/2 cup, and the sugar to 1 and a 1/4 cup. I've never tasted anything so moist.I used a 10 inch Bundt, it turned out beautifully! Thanks so much.


Double the filling. Put together in three layers instead of two.


This is SUCH a great recipe!! As a matter of fact its so good it's now the only coffee cake I make because everybody wants it!.. Sometimes I add a good scoop of blueberries too.. not too much or it gets too wet... everyone loves it.. & ME TOO!!
