Streusel Coffee Cake

by Laura

My mom made this easy streusel coffee cake recipe for me when I was growing up all the time. I was a treat because we only had it a few times a year. The recipe came from off a box of Bisquick. It’s delicious and simple.

The batter is made by mixing some Bisquick mix along with some milk, egg, and sugar. Then spread the batter into a greased round 9 inch cake pan. Now comes in the the sweet and sugary cinnamon streusel.

The streusel topping is made with some of the Bisquick mix, brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter. One tip I have, is when making the streusel topping, is to use a cheese grater and grate the butter into the mixture. I just grate a little and then mix a little.  I do this until it’s all combined. Sprinkle the streusel mix evenly over the cake batter. Then bake at 375 degrees for 18-22 minutes. Insert a toothpick in the center to make sure it is cooked enough.
