Wonderful! Make it in the 13x9 pan. It bakes up nice and thick. It's a really satisfying treat!

This was good. I made it as directed, and was a tad disappointed that my cinnamon layer in the middle wasn't as full looking as the picture Rita posted, but I did two loaves so I'm not sure if that had anything to do with it. I also notice now that Rita has powdered sugar on top..does this mean she put the whole cinn/sugar combo in the middle layer? Hmmmm. If I make this again, I might try that. Our personal taste is for a crispier crunch from the sugar on top so I'd add less cinnamon next time. When I flipped it out of the loaf pans the cinnamon spilled off the top instead of making a sweet, crusty layer. It's a good recipe and makes a nice textured bread.

I am mad on cinnamon so this was the perfect cake for me - it made a huge cake too which is another bonus and also so easy to do so thanks Charlotte J

Well, I tagged this recipe for 123 tag... and was up really early this morning, so I thought I would make it to take to work to share. Making coffee cake at 4:00 am is not the best idea- I accidently added the sugar mixture to the whole cake. Ended up stirring it up and poured it in the pan. It was finished after about 40-45 minutes. Took it to work anyway. It tastes like regular cake, just really really sweet. Thanks for sharing. I will have to try it again, but follow the directions next time.

I made this cake yesterday for my friends and family, everyone loved it! An amazingly not too soft and not too crumbly texture, just right, and what a soft taste! Thank you for sharing this recipe :-)....next time I would add more cinnamon mixture inside to give it a bit of a bigger line through the middle when its being cut ....:)

Made this today, I had all the ingredients in the cupboard. Good, clear instructions and easy to make. My daughter arrived 10 minutes after it came out the oven and followed her nose straight to it. She has a work meeting tomorrow morning and decided it was good enough to take with her. So much commenting on the taste...I never even got a look-in. However, because of the ease making this cake, and the wonderful aroma from it, I will have another go tomorrow, in secret, and I know where my DD is...at a a meeting eating MY cake.
