It's just a matter of personal expectations, I guess, that account for the variation in reviews of this recipe. This is a basic, standard recipe for Dinette Cake that is quite common and has been around forever, so again, liking it or not is a matter of personal preference because there isn't anything "wrong" with the recipe. I didn't like it and won't tinker with it to make it better or different. It IS fluffy and moist, but it has a coarse, open crumb I found unappealing.

Bravo ! Excellent coffee cake. Very easy to make. I added a tablespoon of shortening and an extra teaspoon of vanilla & butter extract for added moistness and flavor. Overall an A+ ! Works great in a mini toaster oven :)

I have this thing about cooking with shortening, I hate it. So, instead I substituted Land-O-Lakes Light Butter, and the cakes (we made mini, individual heart cakes instead of one big one) came out absolutely delicious. They were fluffy and moist and had a lot of flavor.
