12 Days of Breakfast ~ Day 3 ~ Streusel-Layered Coffeecake

Here we go again, having cake for breakfast!  But it is COFFEEcake, so it's totally a breakfast food, right?

This is a really yummy one.  A little bacon on the side, add some fruit, and you've got yourself a great Christmas morning breakfast!

Streusel-Layered Coffeecake

1/2 cup light brown sugar
2 TBSP butter, softened
2 TBSP flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1 1/2 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla

For streusel:  in small bowl, combine brown sugar, 2 TBSP softened butter, 2 TBSP flour, cinnamon, and nuts.  Mix together with a fork until well-combined.

For batter:  beat egg with a hand mixer until frothy.  Beat in sugar and butter until well combined.  Add milk and vanilla.  Stir in baking powder, salt, and flour.

Spread half of the batter into a 8x8 baking dish that has been either buttered or sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.  Sprinkle half the streusel mixture over the batter.  Repeat with remaining batter and streusel mixture.

Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes.  Cool slightly on wire rack, serve warm.

  1. sounds good, are we doing the 'malt balls'? Sounds like breakfast to me. Kids and I are in the kitchen making cookies today, so got your blog set up for some recipes!
