Stuesel Coffee Cake

Who doesn't like coffee cake?
This one is came out nicely. I didn't have a tube cake pan, but it worked out fine in a bundt pan. Make sure you watch the baking time carefully or it will easily over bake and come out dry. I think next time I make this, I'll double the streusel.

Sour Cream Streusel Coffee Cake (Ina Garten)
Preheat oven to 350F

1 1/2 sticks butter
1 1/2 C sugar
3 X-large eggs
1 1/2 t vanilla
1 1/4 C sour cream
2 1/2 C cake flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp kosher salt

Cream butter and sugar until creamy and light in color (4 min)
Add eggs, vanilla and sour cream. Combine well.

Sift dry ingredients and slowly add to batter and mix well.

1/4 C brown sugar
1/2 C flour
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp kosher salt
3 T cold unsalted butter

Mix together streusel ingredients and crumble in the butter with your fingers or a pastry blender. Spoon half of the batter in a pan and sprinkle with about 3/4 C streusel. Fill with remaining batter...

Top with the rest of the streusel.
Bake for about 50 min. and cool.

Mix about 1/2C confectioners sugar with 2 T maple syrup.

Drizzle over cake and ENJOY!
