"Outrageously delicious is all I can say about this cinnamony, nutty, Coffee Cake. Moist and unbelievably good describes this recipe to a T! I remember the first time my friend Marie's sister Judy made this recipe, and I thought I had died and gone to heaven when I took my first bite. It is that good! Great for breakfast, brunch or for dessert. Try it, and let me know how you like it. NOTE: Do NOT over-bake!"

I made this recently a few times now. It is quick, easy, moist and delicious! We had it this morning with tea. You have got to change it up a bit once in awhile! We love anything with cinnamon and nuts any time of the day. Going for a second piece right now!

This coffee cake is so delicious and moist. We loved every single piece we had! It was hard not to overindulge and eat 2 pieces at a time. I loved it as dessert as much as I did with my morning cup of coffee. So happy to snag this recipe!

Very good coffee cake that feeds a crowd. We skipped the nuts, also only had 1 cup of sour cream so used 1 cup of milk added to the sour cream. Thanks for sharing!
