Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake

  • Yield 8 servings

A tasty treat to serve with a nice hot cup of coffee or tea.


Cinnamon Streusel:
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup chopped nuts
Coffee Cake:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup sour cream


  1. To prepare the streusel, combine the brown sugar, granulated sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and mix well.  Stir in the nuts.
  2. To prepare the coffee cake, mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt together.
  3. Beat together butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla and sour cream. Add flour mixture to butter mixture, a little at a time, beating well after each addition.  The batter will be thick.
  4. Spread the batter and streusel half at a time in a lightly greased 9×9-inch baking pan, ending with the streusel.  Bake at 325F for 40 minutes or until the coffee cake tests done.
