Streusel Coffee Cake

Pin It

In the winter, I have oatmeal for breakfast.

In the summer, I have fruit and a granola bar.

On the weekends, I always treat myself to eggs and hash browns.

But on certain days...days when I feel like I've been extra good and deserve a little treat...those days, I have something sweet.  And this past week that something sweet was Streusel Coffee Cake.

This cake was delicious. I made it the night before and had it for breakfast the next day, and the cake was moist and the crumb topping added the perfect amount of sweetness. I highly recommend this for brunches or group gatherings. Everyone will thank you for it. Enjoy!
