    Delicious cake! I will definitely make it again, but would add more cranberries next time.  -  25 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this cake to bring to work, and everyone loved it! I had no hazlenuts, so I used pecans, and I added more cranberries, but other than that , I wouldn't change a thing! I usually make a "Jewish" coffee cake in a bundt or angel-food cake pan, so this was a niace change, both the pan and the cake!  -  22 Mar 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very nice coffee cake. Wasn't able to have any warm, which I believe is the best way to enjoy coffee cake, but this one sustained me all week for breakfasts. Great for eating in the car, as there were very few crumbs.  -  31 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
