Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake

November 13, 2012 by 11 Comments

Muffin Monday was Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake Monday this week and despite changing the typical schedule, there wasn’t even one whimper or complaint!  This recipe was given to me at one of my wedding showers and I hadn’t made it in a long time.  It was such a treat!  The recipe bakes into a large 9×13 cake.  I thought there would be plenty to share with our sweet neighbors.  Wrong!   All three sweeties wanted a slice in their lunch and begged for a slice for snack after school.   We finished it off pretty quickly!

Here are Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake’s ingredients…

  3. Pour batter into a greased and floured 9-by-13-inch pan.
  4. Sprinkle the reserved topping mixture over the surface.
