Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake

On the weekends, there is nothing better than when my hubby whips up an amazing breakfast. He makes anything from baked donuts, to muffins and breads, to different types of coffee cakes. I know, I am quite lucky, right? Last weekend, my hubby made this for us and let me tell you, this was not only amazing, but my family went crazy over it. The kids said it was “the best breakfast ever”. It was incredibly moist, had the perfect amount of cinnamon layering throughout it, and made plenty for us all to enjoy it during the weekend! I would definitely recommend trying this if you have family/friends coming into town, or are hosting a get together at your house. This is definitely a crowd pleaser!!
