I missed it

I made this coffee cake after reading all the rave reviews. I followed the recipe, but found the cake dry, though better the next day. I like chocolate but found it overpowering. Maybe Kahlua would be a better sub for the coffee?

Easy & Tasty

The chocolate made this a better coffee cake and was a great addition to our packed lunches. Being so easy to make ensures we'll have it more often.

Coffee Cake

This cake was so easy and delicious. It reminds me of the recipe we used to make in high school, (only without the chocolate). My kids enjoy taking a piece in their lunch.
