    Good Cake

    Chandel Strickland from HOUSTON, TX

    Think was a pretty good cake although I did expect a bit more flavor of coffee and chocolate. It was not too sweet and instructions were easy to follow.

    Before this, I had NEVER baked a cake, let alone made one from scratch. I was really nervous, but followed the recipe *exactly*. It came out perfect!! My husband loved it, and had it before and after dinner! :) I love it, too, and will definitely be making this again.

    So Good

    This cake was a great success, but for all those Nordicware users, don't forget to reduce heat by 25 degrees farenheit.

    Delicious Coffee Cake

    MARIANNE ZINKEWICZ from BROOKLYN, NY

    I made this recipe the other day and brought it to a friend's house. It turned out just beautiful and tasted delicious! I didn't have the recommended raisins on hand, but just having the almonds was good enough. The combination of the coffee, cocoa and brown sugar was very, very yummy and a nice cup of coffee or tea goes very well with it no matter what time of day.

    Breakfast eye opener

    Annette Witherspoon from GEORGETOWN, TX

    I liked the idea of these combinations of ingredients. But looking at the ingredients I thought it might be too dry, so I increased the yogurt I put coffee liquer instead of the instant coffee. This turned out yummy.

    Almond-Chocolate Coffee Cake

    LEISA DICKENS from KINGSPORT, TN

    This was a very easy recipe and it was very moist. My family and friends loved it, since it did not have an icing (I can't eat icing since I am a diabetic). I also used a different extract instead of the almond. It was very good. Thanks for the recipe.

    GREAT BREAKFAST DESSERT

    Moist and sweet with little surprises

    Michelle Casey from Saint Marys, PA

    My children really liked this cake. I served it for breakfast and my daughter especially was pleased to find the miniature pieces of chopped up apricot in her forkful. I chose to make the 13 x 9 cake and it came out well... though I tested the cake early as it seeme to be quite brown.. and it was done. Perhaps it cooks faster in this pan as it is more shallow.

    Great Family Breakfast

    this recipe makes a moist, delectible dessert that is well worth the effort it takes to put it all together, and it never goes to waste, as it gets eaten quickly.

    LJ HULD from ALEXANDRIA, VA

    When I saw this recipe, I knew my husband would love it. When it finally came out of the oven, he hovered around the kitchen until it had cooled. He snacked on it all day. I'm glad it was easy to make.

    Almond-Chocolate Coffee Cake

    Nancy Love from Boise, ID

    I made this coffee cake for an early morning work meeting. I used the 13x9 baking pan but wasn't sure how long to bake since no time was listed. So I took a gamble and baked for 40 minutes--this is definitely to-o-o long as cake was on the dry side. However the flavor was great and I brought home an empty pan. Next time I will begin testing at 25 minutes when I use the 13x9 pan.

    Easy and Delicious

    Christine L Caballero from PLANO, TX

    This cake was easy to make. The filling was good but I used apricot yogurt instead of plain. This made the cake more flavorful.
