Streusel Layered Coffee Cake ~ oh yum!

Do you have that special request  – like from your son … and he gives you that ‘look’ that makes you melt???  Yeah, he did THAT look ~ and so I had to come up with a recipe that was gonna be EASY, quick  and use the ingredients I had on hand… I found one I had made before and modified it to come up with one REALLY good coffee cake recipe!   It is a HIT !  Mix in 2 bowls… (easy, right??)  bake and have a delicious breakfast, snack, dessert in absolutely no time!


Streusel Layered Coffee Cake

Yield: 9 generous pieces

1 egg

¾ cup sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1/3 c butter (melted)

½ c milk

1 ½ c AP flour

2 ½ tsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

Streusel topping:

½ c light brown sugar, packed

2 Tbsp soft butter, not melted

2 Tbsp AP flour

1 tsp cinnamon

1/3 cup chopped nuts (your favorite)


Mix topping in a small bowl and set aside.  Heat oven to 375°F, spray an 8X8 dish with cooking spray and set aside.  In a large bowl, whisk together egg, sugar, vanilla and melted butter until smooth.  Add flour, baking powder and salt.  Whisk JUST until blended.  Place ½ of the batter in the prepared dish and spread over bottom.  Layer ½ of the streusel topping. Add rest of batter (HINT: dollop over the streusel topping and spread evenly, this way is MUCH easier to not disturb the streusel layer) and add the rest of the topping.  Bake 25-30 minutes or until done.  Cool completely, can top with powdered sugar, make a sugar drizzle or eat just like it is … delicious! ~Enjoy!
