Very good but not as exciting as I was expecting based on other reviews. I added 1 tsp cinnamon to the batter to make it less plain (would do again). I used a good quality chocolate and the flavour really came thru; this is what "made" the cake. The topping was good but not remarkable - would have preferred it a little sweeter and crispier. My husband and I both agreed that we both prefer a more "cinnamon" type coffee cake, but a couple of the people who we made it for raved about it, so I guess it's a matter of preference.
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I will definitely make this again! As mentioned, its a bit labor intensive, but its worth it! Just allow time to assemble and bake. I made the toppings and struessel the night before, and in the morning made the cake batter and assembled. This will qualify you as a domestic goddess!
I USED THE MINATURE CHOCOLATE CHIPS INSTEAD OF CHOPPING THEM. IT'S A BIT LABOR INTENSIVE BUT IF YOU WHAT THE "WOW FACTOR" THIS IS IT. THE TASTE IS T.D.F. GOES INTO MY REPORTIE
