Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake

October 23, 2011
By special request, here is our family coffee cake recipe.  It usually gets made for any family gathering that takes place in the morning, and always on holidays.  Measure out the dry ingredients the night before, and morning prep will be a breeze!

Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake

1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/3 cup melted butter

streusel topping:
1 cup chopped walnuts
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
6 tablespoons softened butter

Combine cake ingredients, pour into buttered 9 X 13 inch pan.  Mix streusel ingredients until crumbly, sprinkle over cake batter.  Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

*Notes:  Streusel may be mixed in a food processor, just pulse a few times until roughly combined.  If cake batter seems too stiff, add a couple  of tablespoons of milk at a time until it appears easier to spread.
