Wow, what an amazing recipe Teresa. I've never made a cake like this before. Where have I been hiding, it was so quick and easy to throw together. The cake was wonderful, light, tender, moist and delicious with a subtle lemon flavor. I loved the addition of the nuts. Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe. Made FYC tag game.

I have made this twice now and it turns out perfectly! I used raspberry yogurt the first time and raspberry/strawberry the second time. This is a very interesting way to make a coffee cake. The texture is lovely when warmed (which is a must). I used walnuts as I forgot to buy pecans. I make this early in the morning and bake it off when I serve dinner. Thanks Teresa for this delicious keeper! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
