Looking for an easy brunch recipe or maybe just a quick breakfast treat, this streusel filled coffee cake is perfect for guests or a lazy Saturday Morning. The original coffee cake recipe called for a 9×13 pan but I reduced the recipe in half for my family of 5. It is the perfect compliment to a cup of coffee or tea and great served warm or room temperature. We added chocolate chips to our streusel filled coffee cake but you can chose the types of nuts, extra ingredients to add to yours.
Homemade coffee cakes are simple to make and only take a few minutes to put together. Skip the store bought ones and enjoy a slice of your own coffee cake tailored to your family’s tastes.
Add half the of the batter into your greased pan, than add 1/2 of the streusel topping than the rest of your batter.
Top off the batter with the other half of the streusel topping.
Bake until a fork comes out clean.
Allow to cool slightly before serving.
Enjoy with a cup of coffee.
