Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake is made with a brown sugar swirl and a crunchy streusel topping. Great for breakfast or brunch, surprise your guests at your next gathering or party.
I have made many, many coffee cakes in my day, but this cinnamon streusel coffee cake certainly looked the nicest, presentation wise. It also tasted quite good.
If you haven't tried the apple strudel coffee cake, I do hope you give it a try. I am seriously considering adding apples to this coffee cake recipe because I think it would be delightful. However, back to the original recipe...
This coffee cake was made in an angel food cake pan. I think that added to the presentation. It baked perfectly and evenly and the cinnamon/flour mixture was simple, yet flavorful.
I don't know about you, but I like having brunch. When I had a baby shower thrown for me, they served brunch food. Rolls, muffins, fruit and orange juice graced the tables and it was a great change from the normal shower foods. This coffee cake would be a perfect addition to your menu.
It makes plenty so a one time bake would cover a lot of guests. So important in my recipe book.
I did not make it for any brunch or baby shower. No, I made it for our weekly breakfast for dinner Wednesday night ritual. It was well received and, well, eaten. That night we didn't have much left, but what we did have left was eaten for breakfast the next day.
This coffee cake is full of cinnamon and crunch, flavor and yum. It may look complicated, but it is not.
Just curious, do you have breakfast for supper at your house?
