Steve ~~ I made this recipe but used 'half' quantity as I wanted a smaller cake. It was PERFECT.. It is very easy to make and the flavor is scrumptious. The one thing I did differently, was to divide the Streusel mix in half .. putting half in the middle (as per recipe) then the other half I sprinkled on top of the cake. I served it with a dollop of whipped cream. This is a KEEPER.. thanks a bunch. :)
Delicious!! The cake came out light and fluffy, and the streusel mix is incredible. I made the glaze with milk as that is what I had on hand... I think the orange juice would be delicious and plan to try that the next time. Thanks so much for this excellent recipe!!Dianne
Made this for Thanksgiving and everybody loved it.
