Layers of cinnamon coffee cake with buttery cinnamon brown sugar streusel are a delicious combination that I simply can’t resist. Fortunately, it’s irresistible to everyone I know, so it disappears fast any time I make it.
Cinnamon Streusel Coffee cake
Whether it’s early in the morning with a cup of coffee, mid-afternoon, or late at night, this cinnamon coffee cake is a favorite. This cake has half streusel and is heavy on cinnamon streusel.
Sour cream adds a richness to the cake and a tender, moist crumb. However, it doesn’t make the cake too sweet. It’s the perfect treat to enjoy with a cup of morning coffee or afternoon tea. It is a great after-school snack that my kids love.
These simple cakes are my favourite to share. Whether I’m taking a whole meal to someone, or sharing a dessert just to bring a friend a smile, cinnamon coffee cake with abundant layers of cinnamon streusel is perfect for any reason.
I first shared this recipe in The Weeknight Dinner Cookbook and it’s been on my frequent repeat list ever since. (For those of you counting, that’s a solid 7 years in the favorites rotation!)
I’m happy to tell you that coffee cake freezes quite well….
