This became coffee cake #4. It only received 1 vote, but it wasn't because it was bad. It just isn't a classic coffee cake so people voted for other cakes.
There was plenty of butter in the ring! Check out the edge of my baking sheet after baking.
Final verdict? I liked it but didn't like the raisins (you're shocked, I'm sure), my father in law loved the raisins. It had too many pecans for one of my brother in laws. I happened to like all the nuts. My other brother in law wouldn't stay away from it and happily took the rest of it home with him. Definitely a success!
