  • 2 cups flour gluten free, if desired⁣
  • 2 tsp baking powder ⁣
  • 1/2 tsp salt ⁣
  • 2 cups sugar ⁣
  • 1 stick unsalted butter room temperature⁣
  • 1 block cream cheese room temperature⁣
  • 2 eggs room temperature⁣
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract ⁣


  • 1 stick unsalted butter melted⁣
  • 1 ¼ cup flour gluten free, if desired⁣
  • ½ cup light brown sugar tightly packed⁣
  • 1/3 cup sugar⁣
  • 1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon⁣


  • 1 cup powdered sugar⁣
  • 1-2 Tbsp milk⁣
  • Reserved streusel ⁣


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease and flour a 10-inch Bundt pan.⁣
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. ⁣
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the sugar, butter, and cream cheese on medium speed until light and fluffy, 4-5 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each. Using a rubber spatula, scrape sides of the bowl. Add in vanilla mix to combine. ⁣
  • With the mixer on low, gradually add in flour mixture until just combined. Set aside.⁣
  • In a medium bowl, combine streusel topping ingredients (butter through cinnamon). Mix well. Mixture will be thick and a crumb-like consistency. Set aside.⁣
  • In a prepared Bundt pan, add ¼ of the streusel topping, sprinkling evenly amongst bottom of pan. Add half of the prepared batter, working gently to spread. Add nearly all of remaining streusel, reserving roughly ¼ cup for topping later. Sprinkle amongst top of batter. Add remaining batter over streusel. Working gently to spread, trying to not disturb the streusel.⁣
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a skewer or knife inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean. ⁣
  • Cool cake 10 minutes so the sides pull away slightly and the crumb sets, then invert onto a cooling rack or plate. ⁣
  • When ready to serve, prepare glaze by combining powdered sugar and milk in a small bowl until smooth. Add more powdered sugar or milk as necessary to create desired consistency. Top with remaining streusel.


Entertaining Tip: If coffee cake isn’t your jam, make streusel muffins instead! Simply add ½ of streusel mixture directly to the batter and top with remaining streusel. Cook in a muffin tin for 25-30 minutes.
