Streusel Coffee Cake

For about 15 years now, Sunday morning breakfast in our home has been some form of coffee cake.  The coffee cake is always made Saturday afternoon or evening.  Coffee cake for Sunday morning breakfast helps us to get ourselves ready for church with minimal preparation and clean up, and it’s tasty to boot!

Our repertoire of coffee cake recipes has expanded greatly in that time.  Some are great favorites.  Some are holiday or seasonal specialties.  Some are quick and easy and others require a bit more time.

With Dani out of town I was already leaning toward making a quick and easy coffee cake this afternoon. **Corin has now gone to the hosptial so that the doctors can try to turn baby girl from her breech position, and I have all three grandbabies here with me. Now I’m doubly glad that I chose a quick and easy recipe! I was able to mix it in a hurry with the little ones toddling around and asking questions, and pop it into the oven a few minutes later.

**As soon as I posted this, Rob called from the hospital to say that the hospital was too busy to try the version procedure today, so Corin and Rob are on their way home!

This Streusel Coffee Cake is quick, easy and delicious. The streusel topping makes it just sweet enough. The secret for the speed and ease is using baking mix. It’s great for breakfast, or to serve with coffee or tea any time.

Streusel Coffee Cake

4 1/2 cups Bisquick
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup sugar
2 eggs

Streusel Topping:
3/4 cup Bisquick
2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, firm

Pre heat oven to 375°.
Stir cake ingredients until blended.  (I use my whisk.)  Batter will be very thick.   Mix streusel ingredients separately, and cut in butter in with a pastry cutter.  Spread cake batter into a greased 9 x 13 cake pan.  Sprinkle streusel evenly over top.  Bake 25-30 minutes.

  • I will have to try this!  I love cakey stuff in the AM and the kids too!

  • What time shall I be over?:lol:  Ah,  Corin and Rob must have been so disappointed ~ will pray that the doctor gets to do the procedure real soon.  Before they know it they will be holding that precious baby girl in their arms.

  • I love coffeecake so I will have to try your recipe! If I wanted to make it the night before do I put the struesel on it then or right before bake time?
    I’m sorry to hear about the hospital being so busy again!


  • Kelli – the streusel goes on immediately after mixing the batter and just before baking.  It’s all done at once.  If  You make t the day before but you want it warm Sunday morning, you could probably pop it into the oven for a bit to warm it.  We always just eat ours cold.

  • I am trying to cut and paste the recipe but it seems protected :rolleyes:

  • Sorry, Ang – no right clicking on my site (protecting my pictures as best I can!).  You’ll have to pull out a recipe card and pen and copy down the recipe the old-fashioned way! 😉

  • This is on my menu for a Saturday Night Dessert! Yummy! As southern as this is going to sound, I think I will seve with a scoop of ‘Nilla Ice cream!
