    Beautiful to look at

    Lynn Heidorn from SEWARD, NE

    I made this recipe for the bake sale at my church bazaar. I happened to see one of the ladies who bought a cake and asked her to let me know how it was when I saw her again. She said it was really delicious! All I can say is that for something that comes out looking so professional, it is very easy to make. I'm looking forward to making another batch and keeping one for myself next time!

    Chocolate Almond Coffee Cake to die for

    Anne Peterson from California, MD

    When you combine these two ingredients together there is one thing to say and that is wonderful--easy to make and there will not be any leftovers. This was indeed a little slice of heaven for me in the morning and it stores well provided that you had the foresight to hide a piece for later--I did and I enjoyed making it and eating it.

    Kim Anderson from TAYLORSVILLE, UT

    I love coffee cake and was really excited to make this. I have never had a coffee cake with chocolate in it before so I was curious what it would be like and it was fabulous. I made it for a brunch with friends and they ate it all.

    so easy & oh so good

    Theresa Licari from Syracuse, NY

    this was such an easy dessert to put together ,with ingredients I had on hand. It looks great & tastes even better, I did add one touch of my own, on the top layer I drizzeled carmel topping along with the chocolate glaze. It was awsome. We enjoyed it with morning coffee and then in the afternoon as well. My Husband put the last slice away to have it with his lunch tomorrow.

    I made this for my brother's post-wedding day brunch, and got many compliments on it! It is absolutely melt in your mouth good (especially when served warm). This coffeecake is not too rich, has great flavors, and is relatively simple to make. I will be making this again!

    Chocolate Almond Coffeecake - Yummy!

    Phyllis Cole from Prairie du Rocher, IL

    Baked this coffee cake several weeks ago. Immediately ate one and froze the second one. Thawed the second one over night and microwaved about 30 seconds to soften the chocolate. Couldn't tell it had ever been frozen. Fresh from the oven is always best, but out of the freezer was a very close second.

    Very good and makes your tummy happy!

    Jeri Haley from Tenino, WA

    I loved this recipe but I changed the nuts to pecans (almonds are too hard for my husband to eat). Used the almond extract and it was a delicious coffeecake. Great get together dessert over a good cup of coffee and good friends. Or just a good dessert for after dinner.

    Love a challenge!

    Jeri Haley from Tenino, WA

    I love a challenge when baking. Also love to see if I can improve once I've tried the recipe. This one is almost fullproof. Great recipe, but I would toast the almonds next time and maybe use a different nuts (with almond flavoring). It makes an exceptional presentation along with being delicious. Many thanks to the contributor!

    Great

    helene boldarini from Dearborn, MI

    This cake was easy to make although I baked it longer than the recipe called for. I also used vanilla extract instead of almond extract. My family loved it and I will be making this again.

    What a wonderful treat on a winter afternoon to share with friends. I didn't add the glaze because I thought there was enough sweetness to it already. My friends raved over it!

    I find that a generous teaspoon of orange zest added to the streusal ingredients brings out the almond flavor.

    A little leary

    Donna Harrier from Gaylord, MI

    I am always a little leary, when I see the word advanced in anything....This recipe although it has many ingredients, was not all that difficult to make. I made it for a breakfast tea meeting, with our local hospital auxillary. Everyone asked for the recipe, I told them I found it on verybestbaking.com. Keep up the good work!

    All my sons were home for the new years week-end and what a treat. They all enjoyed this with their coffee on Sat. & I had to make four more to send home with all of them on Sunday. They all love to cook & bake.So I'm sure this was a treat to share with their co-workers.

    This one sure is a keeper. I didn't put the glaze as i felt it would be too much. Though some people thought it was a little too sweet. I sure enjoyed this tempting cake!

    Moist and Tasty

    Susan Cribbs from San Gabriel, CA

    I make this for Mother's Day and took it to my brother-in-law's house for dessert and everyone said it was delicious. This was very easy and took no time at all. The beauty was that you come out with two good sized coffee cakes and I took one to work. Everyone at work has been giving me compliments as well. I love to bake and I'm always looking for an easy, yet moist and tasty recipe and this one fits the bill! Yummy.
