"My Favorite Coffee Cake" from the Mixing Bowl Magazine (Oct 27, 2010)

Recipe Review..."My Favorite Coffee Cake"...from Mixing Bowl Magazine

I love to try new recipes.  Josh, Steph, and Erica were coming to visit this past weekend so I decided to try something new that hopefully everyone would like.  When I saw the picture of "My Favorite Coffee Cake" in The Mixing Bowl Magazine I thought that might be just the thing.  I gathered my ingredients....

As you can see in the picture my glaze did not look nearly as nice as the picture in the magazine.  I followed the recipe exactly.  It tasted really good though. This has happened to me before with these glazes.  I will have to figure out what I am doing wrong:-(
The first slice....
It was wonderful.  Flavorful and moist.  Erica gave it a 10/10 on the cooking scale.  I think I will give it a 9.5/10 on my scale only because it was not as pretty as the picture.  I will make this again.  It is a great cake to serve when company comes.
