Cinnamon Streusel Cake
One of my favorite things in the winter is something warm and sweet with my morning coffee. This little cake is perfect with a cup of coffee or to bring as a little treat at a brunch! Layered with cinnamon sugar and a streusel crumble on top makes it irresistible! I also like to top it with a simple sugar icing for a touch of sweetness.
Few different variations of the recipe:
Nuts – for a fun, and delicious crunch, try adding 1 1/4 cups of chopped pecans or walnuts to the streusel layers!
Fruit – this cake is amazing with some diced apples in it, I like to use Granny Smiths.
Swirl – instead of layering the cake and streusel, you could try swirling it. Still add half your cake batter and half the streusel to the pan, but then take a butter knife or toothpick and swirl it around. Top with remaining cake batter and a layer of streusel and bake as directed.
More streusel – this recipe uses a moderate amount of streusel, but if you’re like me, you’ll want as much of that deliciousness that you can get! Feel free to make extra and add more to either, or both, streusel layers.
Now let's get to the recipe!
