Best Coffee Cake Recipe That I Have Found
February 17, 2014
This cake comes together pretty quickly. It is incredibly easy and so fantastic!
The hint of orange zest is perfect. The 2 sticks of butter and sour cream make this the most moist coffee cake I have ever tried. The flavor is great.
Based on the other review, I added extra berries. However, I have a feeling that is what caused my cake to need extra cooking time for the center to firm up. So next time I will keep it at 1 pint.
I did end up putting foil around the edges to keep the streusel from over browning.
My only critique is that the streusel could use a bit of salt. It is a bit flat as is. Additionally, I do recommend greasing and flouring the pan (even if non-stick), as this cake tends to hold on to the pan making the release rather dicey.
Overall though, this is now my go-to coffee cake. It's incredible! I can't wait to try it with other berries, as well. Highly recommended.
Pros: Quick, Easy, Appearance, Adaptable, Will Make Again
Cons: Unhealthy

Breakfast or Dessert??
September 19, 2012
I made this for a work breakfast and combined it with berries and yoghurt. It was a crowd favorite. The orange zest is the key and compliments the blackberries. Although there were 3 steps, they are all very easy. I used 2 pints of blackberries which allowed for berry in every bite. I also omitted the pecans to avoid allergy issues. It is on the sweeter side of a coffee cake with the streusel and could also be used for a dessert.
Pros: Easy, Will Make Again
