Why You Should Make This Small Batch Streusel Coffee Cake Recipe
Here are all the reasons to make this streusel coffee cake:
This streusel coffee cake recipe is small batch.
Most coffee cake recipes are made in a 9 x 13-inch rectangular cake pan, serving 18 to 24 people. But this streusel coffee cake recipe is made in a 6-inch round pan. The smaller cake size only serves 4 hungry folks or 6 more reasonable ones!
This streusel coffee cake recipe uses basic pantry ingredients—no extra trip to the grocery store required!
It’s likely that you have everything you need in your pantry to make this streusel coffee cake recipe: flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. That’s it! Additionally, you’ll need butter, eggs, and milk, too. However, you do need sour cream to make the recipe. But you can easily substitute the sour cream with yogurt or other creamy dairy—learn more in the recipe!
This streusel coffee cake recipe stores well.
Because of the sour cream and cinnamon filling in the recipe, the cake crumb stays moist and fresh for days. Additionally, the buttery streusel topping acts like a lid and helps prevent the cake from drying out. Cool, right?
