Streusel-Filled Coffee Cake

I have always loved a good coffee cake so a Streusel-Filled Coffee Cake sounded too good to pass up!

I’ve had this recipe dog eared in that Penzeys Spice catalog that I found when we were in Boulder, CO.  All the recipes I have tried from them have been fantastic!!

AND so I expect great things from the Streusel-Filled Coffee Cake recipe and from the smell of it, as it cools on the counter… we are in for a delicious treat!!

My mom use to occasionally make a coffee cake growing up and I was very glad every time she did : )

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes


  • Cake Batter:
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Streusel Filling:
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Cut in the butter until the mixture is like fine cornmeal. In a small bowl beat egg, milk, and vanilla. Blend into the dry ingredients and stir just until incorporated.
  2. For the filling: In a medium bowl mix the sugar, flour, and cinnamon together. Drizzle in the butter. Add nuts. Mix well.
  3. Spoon half the mixture into a cooking sprayed and floured 8 inch square baking dish. Sprinkle with half of the filling. Spoon on the remaining batter over streusel, gently spread. Top with remaining filling. Bake 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Until light touch springs back in the center. Enjoy!
