Perfect for breakfast, brunch or brinner, we love this streusel topped coffee cake recipe in our family!


This coffee cake is one of our favorites, and it has a long history in our family as it is the coffee cake that Leah grew up eating from childhood just about every weekend for breakfast. Passed down from her grandmother, when this cake appears on our table, it doesn’t stick around very long as our boys will gobble it right up.
