Who doesn't like coffeecake? I love coffeecake with streusel and sometimes I stumble into the kitchen in the morning and make it. I made one this morning and my kids went nuts. Cake for breakfast!! (only after oatmeal, kid) Here's one I plan to make for the holiday:



2 cups cake flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup sourcream
3/4 cup buttermilk

1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 tbsp softened butter
1/2 cup coarsely chopped nuts (optional)

Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Cream butter, sugar and vanilla. Add eggs to sugar mix then slowly add buttermilk and sourcream. Gradually add flour mix. Pour into greased cake pan.

cut butter into first three streusel ingredients, then add nuts if you wish. take 1/3 struesel and swirl into coffeecake batter, then sprinkle the remaining 2/3 ontop of batter. Bake at 350 until knife comes out clean, about 35 minutes.

For a delish am treat more in line with a sweet roll, try these.
