Size of pan was not givrn, I assume it is 13x9x2

is it really shortening or butter ok for this?

This looks great! I will be trying this soon. I am always looking for a quick and easy coffee cake and this looks delicious.

Thank you laylamohammed13 6698673, You are exactly right. Scorpio Lady is correct when she says you have to read the instructions carefully. We've looked the recipe over and it seems to be written correctly. Thanks! -Editors of RecipeLion

I did not have a problem with this recipe one must read reccipes carefully, step by step.

I think they mean from the 2 cups sugar and 2 cups flour.. take out 1 cup from that mix.

This recipe is not written very well. It's bound to be a disaster. Just reading " take out 1 cup of sugar and flour for later use" tells you there's an error. Take it out of where, and how much flour??

@grammaBarb: We hope you have better luck making this recipe next time. Let us know if you discover any tricks to making it just right! -- Editors of RecipeLion

Has anyone tried this recipe? It was a disaster for me. It never cooked through. I am going to give it one more try. The only thing I can figure is i must have over mixed? What is the texture supposed to be like when it is poured into the pan?
