    I give this a five star; however, I must admit, I changed the recipe a bit: for the topping I mixed 3 tbsp. white sugar, 1 tbsp. brown sugar, and 3/4 tsp. cinnamon (no butter). For the batter I used 1/4 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar. Also, I added in 3/4 tsp. cinnamon and 1 tsp. vanilla. I baked it at 325 for 22 minutes and it turned out perfect! It was so moist and flavorful and it was gone within 12 hours! Easy and I love how it uses things just sitting around in the pantry.  -  25 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I tried this recipe this morning and it came out wonderful, especially the topping. I doubled the topping and added some cinnamon to the batter. The next time i make it i will add more sugar and triple the topping so i can swirl some through out the batter.  -  06 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe is nice and moist and has a great topping. I found it rather bland though but that could easily be fixed with adding some cinnamon or your favorite spice to the cake itself and perhaps using brown sugar for the topping. It just needs a little kick.  -  26 Dec 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
