Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake


This is a simple coffee cake recipe that’s quick and easy to whip together. It has a nice tender crumb that goes perfectly with the streusel topping. Coffee cake is always a welcome treat at breakfast, but it’s also perfect for brunch, tea time, or anytime you’re craving a little something sweet.



1-1/2 c flour
2-1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg, beaten
3/4 c sugar
1/3 c butter, melted
1/2 c milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 c brown sugar
1/4 c flour
1/4 c butter, room temperature
1 tsp cinnamon

1-1/2 c confectioner’s sugar
2 – 3 T milk
1/4 tsp butter flavoring, optional



Preheat oven to 375°F.


To Make Topping:
In a small bowl combine topping ingredients until crumbly, using a fork; set aside.


To Make Cake:
  1. In another small bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt, stir to combine well.
  2. Beat egg in a medium bowl; beat in sugar and melted butter. Mix in milk and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture until combined.
  3. Pour batter into an 8″ square pan that has been greased and floured.
  4. Sprinkle crumb topping evenly over batter.
  5. Bake at 375° F for 25 to 30 minutes, until cake tests done.
  6. Cool on wire rack for about 10 minutes. Remove cake and place on wire rack to ice.


To Make Icing:

  1. Combine confectioner’s sugar, milk and butter flavoring (if using) to make a glaze that is thin enough to drizzle. Start with about 1-1/2 T of milk and add more if needed. Icing should be thin enough to drizzle. Place in a small zip lock baggie and seal. Snip a very small corner from the bottom of the bag, you want the hole to be about the size of a pin head.
  2. Using a diagonal pattern, drizzle icing across cake. Let icing drip down sides.
  3. Let coffee cake set for a few minutes. Place on decorative platter or plate and serve while still warm.
