World Quickest Yeasted Coffee Cake - Free and Easy Bake Along

It's another Bake Along event and this round is Joyce's pick. She picked the world quickest yeasted coffee cake. I glad she pick this because this is new to me and i get a chance to experience something new.  When I first look at the recipe, I have no idea how it is done nor how does this cake look like.
 I hopped over to Joyce's blog -hers looks nice and soft .  Zoe's blog - hers looks soft too with super yummy topping of gooey caramelize walnuts and Lena's blog - hers looks fun and cute..she made hers in a small portion of 5 small round buns/muffins. After checking out how does this yeasted coffee cake look like and also the recipe I decide to follow Lena's, simply because my family is small like hers...=D  I follow carefully every step in her recipe.

When i have mixed well the dough i found that the dough is very thin about 1cm thick..i was wondering will the dough rise..but after baking it..
The cake comes out to be really nice, the dough is soft and i am like the rest of my blogger friends of this event love the gooey crunchy yummy topping. I reduce a bit if the sugar and the brown sugar though..:)

1) Shape the dough into a disc and put into the prepared round tray. 
2) Sprinkle sugar and brown sugar on the dough.
3) Combine corn syrup, melted butter and cinnamon, spread over dough.
4) Sprinkle chopped nuts on top and send to the oven.

I am posting this to Free and Easy Bake Along #34 hosted by Lena of Frozen Wings, Joyce of Kitchen Flavour and Zoe of Bake for Happy Kids.
