    Now THIS is coffee cake!! This cake is enormous - truly fit for a crowd. It's baked in a 9x13 pan and rises all the way to the top. Coffee cake for a crowd. The cake has three parts - the cake batter, a cocoa filling, and a topping. The cake is made by first putting down half the batter. Then the filling is sprinkled on top of that. The second half of the batter is then added (I always find it tricky trying to spread batter over a topping but I managed). Finally, a crumb topping is spread over the very top. In my oven, this took about 55 minutes to bake. I left it for 20 minutes to cool before trying a piece and was able to remove a piece with no problems. Oh my! Moist but light cake with a delicious center and lots and lots of crumb topping. Perfect for serving with coffee or tea. Simply wonderful.

    This was really good! I didn't have any sour cream, so I substituted buttermilk for the whole milk and sour cream, and it turned out great. I also scaled back the cinnamon (a little more than half of what was called for), as the recipe called for a lot, and I've had previous recipes where the cinnamon was just overpowering. The crumb topping seems like a huge amount - but the results were excellent. We'll make this again without a doubt.
