Cinnamon-Streusel Coffeecake June 18, 2009

King Arthur is a flour company that makes an assortment of different flours.  I’ve never ordered from them but I get their catalogue every now and then, which has great looking recipes in it, including the Cherry Almond Cake I made just recently. 

This Cinnamon-Streusel Coffeecake also came from King Arthur.  Their website is full of all different recipes, from cakes and cookies to soups and pizzas. 

This coffeecake turned out really good but the next time I make it, there would be some definite changes.  It was extremely sweet, due to the filling and streusal topping.  I would make half the amount of the topping next time.  The topping took over the cake and crumbled off when trying to eat it.  I would also take it out of the oven sooner.  I think I over-baked it just slightly, but that’s my own problem.  If you want to see step by step pictures on how to make and assemble and read a blog post about this coffeecake, click here

Sprinkle the filling evently atop the batter, shaking pan side to side if needed.

Spread the remaining batter over the filling and gently swirl the filling into the batter using a knife. 

Sprinkle the topping streusal topping over the batter.

Bake the cake until golden brown around edges and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 40-60 minutes depending on your oven.
